“My ‘useless’ degree and where it got me”

When VIU President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Deborah Saucier graduated with a PhD in Psychology in 1995, the country was in the middle of a recession and people told her she was very lucky to get a job given her “useless” degree. But after 10 years of studying, working in the lab, publishing and training other students, was it really luck?

 During her presentation, Saucier will debunk some popular beliefs around the value (or lack thereof) of a post-secondary education, and share some facts and figures that will showcase not only how important your degree is to help you live a better life, whether you are an English or a Biology major, but also how it will future-proof your job prospects.
