While health science majors and engineers face much better job prospects, and while in the present economy even those prospects aren’t terribly good, the post-graduation employment rate of English and other humanities majors is not that different from computer science or economics — degrees that are generally considered more marketable.
As of 2010-2011, the most recent year with available data, recent humanities and liberal arts majors had 9 percent unemployment. That’s right about on par with students in computer and math fields (9.1 percent), psychology and social work (8.8 percent), and the social sciences (10.3 percent). And it’s just a bit above the average across all majors of 7.9 percent. —Atlantic
