In the year 2012 when some large number of people walk around with cell phones that take super high quality pictures with the click of a button, why did I see an advertisement on FB today for a degree in photography but not numismatics? I'm really only about two years into the hobby and most of that time was spent coin roll hunting for copper cents, but it's such a deep, varied and fascinating field that it just seems odd that academia hasn't tried to work in a niche for it. How many of you good people actually make a living from coins? Do you have some kind of specific training and/or field of research (finance, econ, history)? Do you think a degree in numismatics would have made you better at what you do? Am I a naive American who just thinks that college degrees are short cuts into mastering various fields and allowing people to capitalize on personal passions?
