In this day in age, getting a college education is a societal expectation for relatively everyone. Getting an entry-level job almost always requires a Bachelor’s degree, according to cnn.com. The big question is how relevant or significant are these degrees, and how do they define you?


For hundreds of thousands of dollars, students are receiving degrees in all types of fields: STEM, Fine Arts, Business, Medicine, Education. Some argue that one’s degree makes them smarter than another, or that their degree is more difficult than the next.


On Twitter, arguments have broken out between mostly STEM and Art majors regarding the difficulty of their degree. A STEM major on Twitter said that classes such as Biochemistry do not compare to “cutting out an art project”, obviously triggering a heated conversation regarding major significance.


Fine Arts majors put their whole life into their work, as well as STEM, according to Buzzfeed News.


Spending time devoted to perfecting a scene, or finishing a final draft of a drawing are exhausting tasks that those students take very seriously. This effort is no different than the effort put in by other majors, such as STEM.


Overall, a college education is not easy. There is not a single path of education that is more important or more difficult than another because those paths are tailored to specific students with specific abilities.

About the Writer
Bella Rainey, Web Designer/Developer & Reporter

Hi there, my name is Bella Rainey, and I am a senior here at Timberland!

My role on the Online News staff is to care for the website you are currently visiting. From the layout, design, and content, I keep the page up to date and looking its best for your viewing pleasure! I also am the video editor, and a reporter for the Broadcast Media staff. 

Aside from Online News, I am also the Social Media Manager for Motivation Club, an International Thespian member, FCCLA member, and DECA member. I love being involved at Timberland and doing activities that will help serve my community. Outside of school, I write for my own lifestyle blog (www.positivelybella.com shameless self plug), drink excessive amounts of coffee, sing in my cover band One Fell Swoop, kick butt in fantasy football (go Packers!), and hug any puppy in my line of sight. I plan on moving to Colorado after graduation to attend community college for Web Design and Development. My dream job is to be a creative director or visual designer.

Enough about me, go check out more of our website! Go Wolves!
