The Top 10 College Majors That Will Land You A Job
Oh no, another "best college majors" list? Best is definitely an ambiguous word, one that doesn't really mean much without context. What may be the best degree for someone else may not be the best for you. Some people value money, some value fun, but I think that we can agree that we all value actual employment opportunities. A degree is pointless without employment, so we found which college degrees are most likely to land you a job.
Accountancy is a very difficult but very rewarding major. For those who can complete the rigorous coursework and prove themselves to be outstanding compared to their peers, they are gratuitously rewarded with high starting salaries and a 61.2% chance of landing a job upon graduation.
Economics is something that should never go out of style. Unfortunately, it seems that most people don't even understand basic economics these days. Thankfully for Econ majors, that just makes it easier for you to land a job. 61.5% of economics majors will have a job lined up by graduation, a very promising number. Coursework in economics is far from easy, but nothing worth it comes easy either.
1. Computer Science
Ever get called a nerd or loser for being good with computers? Probably not, since we live in the 21st century, but you get my point. Prove those imaginary haters wrong by being among the most successful graduates out there. 68.7% of computer science majors will have a job opportunity by the time they graduate, and they also have pretty hefty starting salaries. Revenge of the nerds, indeed.
