College Major = $$$


Some college degrees are better than others if you want to avoid the unemployment line.  According to a Georgetown University study, a student is less likely to be unemployed with a degree in a healthcare field versus one in architecture, but is that how students should decide on their college majors?

This UT article, Employment Out of College A Matter of Degree, from Feb. 7, 2012 was forwarded by counseling support staff, John Gradilla. In the article, Elliot Hirshman, president of SDSU, says students shouldn’t base their college major only on economic benefits. He says there’s a bigger picture. What do you think?
