I'm a little more than halfway done with my MA in Interdisciplinary Studies at Western New Mexico University, and although I am enjoying my study, at times it feels a bit pointless. Maybe that owes a lot to the interdisciplinary nature of this degree, and the fact that there is no clear career path. But, ultimately, I don't feel it is entirely pointless because I majored in History and minored in mass communications in my undergrad days, and I really feel that this degree is really just a continuation of those skills - learning to be a better writer and researcher. I really hope that after I graduate I will at least be able to teach some classes online, or in the classroom part-time. Obviously, this degree is not going to be the be-all and end-all, but I do hope it will open up so doors. After I finish this degree I would probably go on to other, perhaps more practical study in other areas, but I'm just not exactly sure yet what I would want to study. I guess my question is now is, does anyone hit a point in their studies where it feels kind of pointless? And, how do you remain motivated when this feeling crops up? Just wondering!
