A college degree used to be an almost guaranteed ticket to a good paying job and a middle class lifestyle. That’s not the case anymore. Many college graduates are finding themselves stuck in the unemployment line. This is happening across the board, but it’s so common for some majors that those degrees are practically worthless. If you’re just starting college, avoid these majors if you want to find a job.
Liberal arts and the humanities were once a standard major. Now they are the keys to indebtedness and unemployment. Recent graduate with these majors have an unemployment rate of 9.4 percent. Social science and recreation majors are not faring much better; their unemployment rate is above eight percent.
The really worthless degrees are in arts and architecture. The arts may improve your mind, but with an unemployment rate of 11.1 percent, they won’t find you a job. Architecture graduates are even worse off; nearly 14 percent of them are unemployed. You are much better off obtaining a degree in cybersecurity or another rapidly growing field.
