    Because it's a universal degree that can fit into a myriad of jobs. Also it's a lot easier, or at least requires a lot less math and computers than, engineering, computer science or the hard sciences. the problem is as my house mate found, it's like psychology or sociology, there are far more people graduating with the degrees than there are jobs for them. So a large number of them end up going on to getting an MBA, which is exactly what my housemate is doing.

    because in our capitalist society, the jobs that require that study are rather overpaid.

    Men feel a need to get a degree that will earn the income to support a family.   Women feel they can get a degree with no income potential such as women’s studies and marry a man who received a more lucrative degree.

    Because it opens so many doors when they graduate, they can go in to lots of different career areas

    Because they hope that it helps them earn more in the future than studying easier, more fun subjects would.

    Because it's a qualification for a good job. You might find Media Studies more interesting, but it only qualifies you to sit around watching TV and you need to flip a lot of burgers to pay the rent.
