If you or someone you know is enrolled in, or considering, higher education, this infographic might be a conversation-starter. The graphic compares the level of unemployment among people who hold post-secondary degrees from various majors. Those with a degree in Actuarial Science are the most employed, while those with a degree in Clinical Psychology are struggling to find work. The pushpins, meanwhile, represent the popularity of each of the majors on the graphic.
The results are based on data from sources in the United States (The Wall Street Journal, The U.S. Census Bureau and The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce), but the results are similar to findings about the relationship between pay and post-secondary education in Canada.
A study from the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada found that students with a Bachelor of Arts degree earn less than those with applied degrees such as a bachelor of science, and that liberal arts degree holders earn the least of all on average.
