What are some majors in college that are useful for a career in today’s job market?

Careers that, even in this struggling economy/Job Market are in need? Something besides teaching, nursing, and accounting. That’s what I got in my last question. Is there anything else? There has to be.

I’m majoring in English literature, because it applies to many different careers and doesn’t lead to just one, like nursing or accounting. An English degree can lead to a journalist, critic, small business owner, marketing, advertising, publishing, writing captions, designing layouts for magazines etc, editing, management, and even law school.

    It really depends on where you’re looking to find a job. Computer Science and Pharmacy seem to still be pretty good fields to go into.

    You could become a social worker, however they get such low pay it’s not even worth it.

    Computer Technology is a good field. Today Engineering is excellent especially if you go into the Electrical field. There will be many job opportunities that cannot be outsourced, so consider the energy or environmental fields
