Notice the degree programs are listed alphabetically. CS is not (necessarily) the 5th most useless degree even on their list.

Also "most useless" appears to mean "not leading quickly to employment" rather than "not helpful." This may have more to do with every employer of CS grads being on a continuous unicorn hunt for 10x developers and less to do with the value of the degree curriculum. It may be a valid complaint about CS degrees that it's hard to break in to that first job. CS is like medicine in that it requires some supervised apprenticeship after graduation. Only the tech world doesn't provide that.
