The 10 Least Valuable College Majors

Not all college majors are created equally.

"What you make depends a lot on what you take." -Anthony Carnevale

While it may sound fun trying to make Jurassic Park a real thing, it may not pay very well after graduation. Your choice of college major substaintially effects your employment prospects and future earnings potential. Many students take courses in whatever interests them without thinking about what the degree can really do for them. All of the majors on this list typically have low entry level demand and low earnings. While this is not always the case and no education is ever wasted, if you don't want to live with your parents for years after graduation, you might want to pick a different major rather than chose one of the following:

1. Anthropology and Archeology 

2. Film, Video, and Photographic Arts

3. Fine Arts

4. Philosophy and Religious Studies

5. Liberal Arts

6. Music

7. Physical Fitness and Parks Recreation

8. Commercial Art and Graphic Design

9. History

10. English Language and Literature 

Money cannot buy happiness. And while these majors may not rake in the big bucks, the worst possible decision is to select a major that makes you unhappy. A college degree will open more doors than it will close. Take advantage of that opportunity to find something that makes you truly happy and run with it.
