Before to deciding your college major, you should be thinking very carefully about your future. Essentially, this requires that you do your research in regards to available opportunities in the job market that are related to your subject, in advance. If you don’t take the time to investigate the job market or choose the major that offers good career prospects, your degree won’t help you land your dream job anytime soon.
This infographic from Rutgers University presents a list of 10 college degrees employers either don’t want to see or aren’t interested in. For example, a degree in Latin won’t get you a job unless combine your studies with a subject that’s going to be in high-demand by the time you finish your studies.
According to the infographic, here’s the list of the degree subjects that force graduates to face unemployment after graduation:
#3 Music Therapy
#5 English Literature
#6 Social Sciences
#7 American Studies
#10 Art History
Since economic and societal structures continue to change, the job market requires skilled graduates who have studied certain specialised subjects, and are skilled enough to join the workforce.
