It’s been a while since I completely re-read all my Robert Heinlein books, but along with science fiction (he preferred the term speculative fiction) he wrote a number of essays which were drawn together in a couple of books. I don’t remember which one it’s in or where on my shelf it is, but one of his essays dealt with essentially this question. I believe his answer was something like humanities or something like that. At random he chose to use U.C. Santa Barbara for an example and listed the entire 4 years of course work required to get the degree. As I recall the only math and science required was the bare minimum needed to get a B.A. (basic), nothing else in the course work would pertain to any job in the real world and his basic premise was that you could get a college degree without doing any kind of real work that would be helpful in getting any kind of job (except, I guess, teaching one of the classes needed to get this degree).
I apologize in advance if I’ve offended those out there with humanities degrees if the essay was actually about a different course of study. I’ll try to find the essay (I have about 700 paper backs in my den, with stacks everywhere) and if/when I do I’ll update this answer
