I am constantly amazed at the bone-headed choices some people make. Please don't take offense, as I'm sure I could have chosen better, myself. It seems like nursing and the other healthcare professions have good employment prospects. Engineering also looks good, although maybe not so much with aerospace. Business always seems a solid choice, as do geology, military science and accounting. I'm not too bullish on economics, psychology, education, social work or journalism as career paths.
Several other majors strike me as fun summer camp activities or perhaps appropriate paths to graduate school. You can never go wrong with math, english, history or the sciences, but it seems like these degrees are less likely to stand alone, and are preliminaries to some other continuing studies.
Your thoughts? What advice would you give to an 18 year old?
