Best College Majors For Your Career

In a recent blog, we highlighted the worst college majors for getting a job.

Now, here’s the flip side of the coin, according to Kiplinger Personal Finance magazine’s annual survey of the best majors for entering into a lucrative career after college. Says Kiplinger,

“Many Millennials grew up hearing that they should study what they love. While that’s a nice sentiment, it’s also landed countless recent grads in quagmires of  student debt and unemployment. In today’s tough economic climate, some college  majors simply offer better prospects than others—and savvy students should want to know the difference.”

According to Kiplinger, here’s the top majors offering “an attractive combination of big paychecks and abundant employment opportunities.”

  1. Pharmacy and Pharmacology
  2. Nursing
  3. Transportation Sciences and Technology
  4. Treatment Therapy
  5. Chemical Engineering
  6. Electrical Engineering
  7. Medical Technologies
  8. Construction Services
  9. Management Information Services
  10. Medical Assisting Services
