Also, the link I posted discussed opportunities at the bachelor's degree level, not for philosophy PhDs. In equating the two, I believe your cousin would note that you are engaging in a straw man fallacy.
I am not equating the two. They are not equal. She came from a family of tenured academics and actually wanted to work in her field as an academic. Didn't happen.
But what really puzzles me is how a joke has morphed into what is starting become a contentious discussion.
Whoever made that image that I originally posted chose someone with a BA in Philosophy. It could have been an MA, or PhD and in other subjects like English, History, Classics, Anthropology, Archeology, Assyriology, etc.
BTW I have nothing against these subjects, but rather am a student of them. And though I don't agree with him I respect some one like the late Dr. David Pingree (Brown U.) who started out as a mathematician, and then, following in the footsteps of Otto Neugebauer, became a historian of the exact sciences leading him to delve into ancient astronomy and astrology which required him to get into a variety of languages including those in Cuneiform, Greek, Latin, Arabic and Sanskrit. His translation and commentary of Yavanajataka
is in all the foregoing languages minus Cuneiform. You would be hard pressed today to find someone with such an interdisciplinary approach. Unfortunately most of the programs he started are being shut down because of lack of funding. It is a fascinating subject but apparently not seen as valuable by university admins who increasingly view university as a business.
