With the closure of Yale-NUS, we managed to witness a round of whining from liberal arts majors from that institution. Even though I was a fan of having a liberal arts college in Singapore, I support the closure of Yale-NUS because it does not make sense to use my tax money to subsidize foreigners to study here, turn woke, and cross-dress on campus. Also, the pandemic employment rate of Yale-NUS is a joke – you can see this for yourself, the employment rate of these academic bluebloods is lower than our vulgar and provincial business school.
There is a looming crisis in the field of Humanities.
A part of the problem in the field is so specialised, there are very few jobs that specifically will require someone with a particular humanities major. The best jobs are in government and teaching, but our government can’t absorb all humanities graduates into every ministry that we have.
