Unemployment rates are high for recent graduates unless you have a certain major. A report by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and Workforce published in The Chronicle for Higher Education show graduates who studied health have unemployment rates of only 5.4 percent compared to 8.9 for overall recent bachelor’s-degree graduates. A degree in health care does not only have a relatively low unemployment rate, but it also has high earnings.
