The worst degrees for your career

Kiplinger has published an analysis of what the worst degrees are for achieving your career. This analysis refers to the value that a graduation adds to the career prospects of those studying at US universities but I think it will be useful to understand what are the less attractive apprenticeship from the labor market in general.

First of all, it is clarified that a degree can improve your employment prospects and the size of your salary. On the average, in the United States, those completing equivalent studies at the Italian high school earn 40% less than those who earn a degree and run a double risk of being unemployed.

That being said, not all graduates contribute equally to your career prospects. For graduates of some disciplines, job prospects are worse than those of graduates.

Reading: Find a Job right after your Degree

If you take into account the expenses and the time spent on college studies, some choices of study courses may seem far from ideal. Using data provided by and the Georgetown University's Center on Education and Workforce, Kiplinger has taken into consideration graduates (both recent and those whose career is already underway) to figure out who are the ones most at risk of low wages and high unemployment.

In practice, "artistic" or "not practical" cutting degrees are those that offer the worst prospects of work, lower wages and higher chances of working in areas for which a degree may not be necessary (ad Such as retail trade). For example, an Anthropology degree is ranked at the top of the worst ranking for your job prospects. They follow art lessons; Film and photography; Philosophy and religious studies.

If your main motivation to study at the university is to find a job done studies, then the advice is to focus on more expansive courses and more tangible work prospects.
