I’ve written before about the crisis of student loans that is facing a large number of young people today. A recent study by the Center on Education and the Workforce at Georgetown University further drives home one of my biggest points:
…we argue that college remains the best alternative for young workers with one caveat: Not all majors are created equal. Some majors offer substantially better employment prospects than others.
While I completely agree with the sentiment, why would it come as a surprise that unemployment rates vary greatly among recent college graduates and that there is a correlation between what degree the student has and that rate?
