Architecture Majors Hit Hardest by Unemployment

Man working on a computerWant job security? Then you may want to consider the following majors: engineering, science, education and healthcare.

A recent report by Georgetown University revealed that if you want to land a job fresh out of college, you have to major in a field that is linked to these fastest growing industries. The study by Georgetown’s Center on Education and the Workforce also reported which majors are failing degree holders.

Architecture grads, for instance, have the highest unemployment rate of their peers. They’ll have to tackle figures of about 13.9 percent due to the decline in housing construction.

The survey also revealed that grads with non-technical degrees are facing tough unemployment rates. Those who majored in the arts have an 11.1 percent unemployment rate. While those with degrees in the social sciences have a rate of 8.9 percent.

Women and minorities earn less than their male or Caucasian counterparts. A recent study from the College Payoff report from Georgetown University found that women and minorities, excluding Asians, with master’s degrees, doctoral degrees or professional degrees benefit less from having a higher education.

“Latinos and African-Americans with master’s degrees earn nearly the same in their lifetimes—roughly $2.5 million—as white workers who have bachelor’s degrees,” the study revealed.

Women must attain a Ph.D to make more than men with bachelor’s degrees. They earn roughly $2.86 million in their lifetime, while men with bachelor’s degrees earn $2.6 million in their lifetime.

Additionally, men with little college experience and no degree earn about the same as a woman with a bachelor’s degree, the study found.
