College students returned to campus this week as the summer winds to a close. While the liberal arts style of schooling is popular in American higher education
, many disciplines are more employable than others even in this tight job market.
Some of the most employable majors are technical ones that are geared towards a trade, like teaching special education or working as a medical technician. Adhering to the stereotypes, getting a degree in philosophy does not guarantee a job after crossing the graduation stage, with an unemployment rate that is roughly 50 percent higher than the overall average. As college grows more expensive
, students are under increasing pressure to find a job after graduation.
