As a recent college grad, this definitely rings true. I would say that the expectation of a degree is the problem and not really what an individual studies. I think that degrees should be accessible to anyone, but job markets should only really value degrees for professions like being a doctor.
I majored in International studies because it was a general major that was not super restrictive. I want to get into journalism, and other types of non-fiction like essays. Doing it on various platforms like this one and what you listed is my option.
