5 College Degrees That Will Be Extinct In 20 Years.


Pharmacy Degree

Your prescription can be filled by a robot. That is a simple idea to grasp. More and more drugstores are turning to this idea of an automatic pick up or drop off, and there is no real need for a pharmacist in this world. Compounding is still relatively used, but as big pharmaceuticals dominate the playing field – the need for compounding will dwindle as well. Go big and become a doctor instead, as this job is very replaceable.

Broadcast Communications Degree

Broadcast is an ever changing field. The TV is no longer the main news outlet, and a degree in broadcast communications focuses on an outdated technology. Communication efforts are changing daily, from Snapchat to Facebook – we get our news in a very different way these days.


Paralegal Degree

Most of the duties of a paralegal can easily be done by a computer these days. Filing and research can easily be done online, and does not require a human touch. Law itself can be replaced by technology, so paralegal studies is the obvious first cut to the industry.

Hospitality And Tourism Degree

You know those kiosks that you check in to at the airport? That is the projected future of hotels. Majoring in hospitality and tourism is a mistake, because most of that industry can easily be replaced by technology. The need for hotel desk agents, travel agents, and more are truly dwindling.

Accounting Degree

Basically, if Quickbooks can do it – you don’t really need your accountant. More and more companies are coming up with ways to do taxes online – from Turbo Tax to H & R Block. In house accounting is only truly necessary for larger companies, and tax accounting for most individuals can be done online directly. The changing course of this career requires less number crunching and more insight. A good alternative to this degree is finance, where you can be more dynamic in your career.


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. John Quincy Adams
