Top 10: Best Degree For Finding A Job

imagesWe are starting another series of blog posts called, “Top 10″.   I love lists and I feel they are easy ways of digesting information in an entertaining way.   The first list we are checking out is the Top 10 Best Degrees For Finding A Job, which was posted on Yahoo Education.   The list is from a Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce study called, “Hard Times: College Majors, Unemployment and Earnings.”   I love this list because it is not identifying the most popular majors.  It is identifying a much more pragmatic approach to find out which majors will actually help you the most in finding employment after you graduate.

  1. Nursing
  2. Elementary Education
  3. Physical Fitness and Parks & Recreation
  4. Chemistry
  5. Finance
  6. Mathematics
  7. Hospitality Management
  8. Drama and Theater Arts
  9. Family and Consumer Sciences
  10. Marketing and Marketing Research

Do you think this list is missing a major?  Share it with us and start a discussion.
