Art and Anthro Majors: Don’t Read This Post! Kiplinger’s recent list of the 10 worst college majors spells bad news for anyone studying anthropology, fine arts, philosophy and 7 other majors. Analyzing the unemployment rates and median salaries for recent grads–as well as growth in the field and likelihood of ending up in retail, anthropology ranks as the worst college major.
Say the Kiplinger editors: “New anthropology majors face stifling unemployment, forcing nearly a third to take low-paying office or sales jobs. More dramatically, recent grads stand to make a mere $28,000 per year – less than the median pay for someone with only a high school diploma.” Ouch!
