How Your Major Affects Your Employment Prospects

November 23, 2011 in Daily Bulletin

The Wall Street Journal recently did an analysis of census data to find how rates of unemployment and earnings varied by major. The six majors with a 0% unemployment rate are:

  • Actuarial Science
  • Pharmacology
  • Educational Administration and Supervision
  • School Student Counselling
  • Geological and Geophysical Engineering
  • Astronomy and Astrophysics

Clinical Psychology, at an unemployment rate of close to 20%, seemed to be the worst major for a college student to pick. To find out how your major compares to others in both earnings and unemployment %s click here.
