What Can I Do with a Major in...? 190 Careers That More Than 10,000 Graduates of the 19 Most Popular Majors Have Entered From 1950 to the Present.
Malnig, Lawrence R.; Morrow, Sandra L.
This volume provides the reader with a number of useful insights about educational and career planning. The authors followed up their college alumni over a span of two decades, reporting both initial and subsequent jobs held by the graduates of each college department. To organize such a document, the authors have indicated Dictionary of Occupational Titles numbers for each job entry, listed in a separate column jobs students entered in the five years immediately following graduation, and provided conditions under which users may reproduce certain parts of the material. The index lists alphabetically, all the jobs alumni currently hold, and the number of graduates from each major holding them. The index provides the reader with a guide to: (1) jobs most frequently open to recent graduates; (2) jobs which graduates of specific major departments tend to enter after graduation; and (3) careers and professions open to graduates of virtually any major field.
