Top 10 College Degrees

--> The unemployment rate in America is more than 8 percent, yet the cost of a college degree continues to increase. This presents a problem because students are reluctant to work for a college degree that won’t pay for itself. There are jobs that have good job growth predicted, so it makes sense to find one of those jobs and choose a college major based on that choice.

1.     Those who earn biomedical engineering degrees should have a good chance at finding jobs. This job is expected to see a growth of 72 percent by 2018. These people work to build medical items like artificial limbs or better ways to dispense medicine. People who might be interested in this degree, which can pay from $82,000 to $103,000, would benefit from a biology or physics degree.



2.     Through 2018 it is projected that there will be 1.26 million teaching jobs from elementary through secondary education, making an education degree a good bet. Schools often have a difficult time finding math, chemistry, and physics teachers so people with these majors will be highly sought after.

3.     Technology degrees will continue to be in demand. Whether computer science or information processing, people with this degree will find work. Businesses need IT people, and they will inevitably seek out individuals who know how to use technology to guide their growth into the future.

4.     Businesses are projected to need people with economics or finance degrees over the next few years. With the economics problems we've seen worldwide in recent years, companies will look for employees who can help them make sense out of what is happening and steer them in a fiscally responsible direction.

5.     Nursing jobs are expected to be in demand for at least the next 10 years. As Americans age, more caregivers will be needed to take care of them. An individual with a bachelor’s degree in nursing can make $60,000 per year, and if they are willing to relocate, getting a job is rarely a problem.

6.     It is predicted that there will be a shortage in special education teachers. As more children are diagnosed with autism and other learning difficulties, more special education teachers will be needed to assist these students and their teachers. There tends to be a lot of paperwork with this job, but it can be very rewarding.

7.     Actuaries specialize in risk assessment to help predict various outcomes. As businesses want to protect their investments, more actuaries will be needed. People who seek this job must have a college background in statistics, corporate finance, and business.

8.     There is expected to be a 21 percent increase in forensic technicians in the next several years. These professionals, who help police and insurance companies, need a degree in forensic science or chemistry and can expect a starting salary of at least $35,000.

9.     Over the next 10 years there will be an increased need for medical assistants. As doctors’ offices and hospitals try to reduce overhead, one way is to hire more physician assistants who will take histories, make some prescriptions and generally enable doctors to do more focused work.

10.  There will likely be a shortage in many areas of engineering over the next 20 years or so. These are some of the highest starting salaries of all professions. Students considering this major should excel in math and science.

The cost of getting a college degree keeps going up, so if a person is going to make that investment, it makes sense to choose a degree that will allow the graduate to find a job and make a decent living. Fortunately, by doing some research and using common sense, there are professions that defy the current economy and are growing. Get in on them, and move into the future.
