Buyer’s remorse is never fun, but it’s particularly painful when it comes with the time and cost of getting a college education.





To help you avoid this stinging regret, PayScale has ranked the majors college alumni recommend least. If you have your heart set on one of these, you don’t necessarily have to change course -- just do your research on job prospects so your dreams aren’t dashed after graduation day。

以便防止这类状况,PayScale为毕业生最不推荐的专业干了个排行。假如你正倾情于在其中一个专业,也没必要特意变动课程内容――你只必须搞好职业前景调研,以防梦碎大学毕业时候。

1. Anthropology

1.人类学

According to PayScale’s data, 35 percent of anthropology majors wouldn’t recommend it to current students。

依据PayScale的调研数据信息,35%的人类学学生不肯向新生儿推荐本专业。

“People typically regret majoring in anthropology because they have a preconceived notion that there is a direct and specific job title perfectly correlating to it,” says training and development consultant Farrah Parker. “Instead of recognizing the broad spectrum of careers that they can pursue, they focus on their inability to find a career with an exact reference to their major。”

学习培训及发展趋势咨询顾问Farrah Parker称:“大部分人后悔莫及选了人类学,由于大伙儿原来感觉会毫无疑问有与之专业对口的岗位。学生们只为找一个和专业密切相关的岗位,却不愿在更广泛的领域内找工作。”

Anthropology majors could consider work in community organizations or government, for example, or combine the major with others to make themselves more marketable。

人类学学生能够考虑到在小区组织或是政府部门工作,或是融合别的专业来学习培训以融入市场的需求。

2. History

2.历史时间

This major is recommended by only 33 percent of its graduates. Many history majors go on to work in academia, or may find jobs with government agencies, libraries or organizations dedicated to the period they studied。

仅有33%的毕业生推荐了这一专业。许多历史系学生变成老师学者或是在政府部门、公共图书馆或是其他组织工作,而且一生着眼于科学研究她们所科学研究的历史时间环节。

Parker says it’s important for graduates to keep their options open after graduation. “People with narrow definitions of career paths find themselves regretting majors,” she says. “However, those who recognize that the workforce is full of positions that require expertise outside of what may be formally listed in a course catalog find themselves in a perfect position to brand their college major in whatever manner they see fit。”

Parker说针对毕业生而言,在挑选工作时维持一个对外开放的心理状态十分关键。“把岗位路面限制得太窄的人非常容易对自身的专业不满意。工作中四处都必须一些附加的专业专业知识,而这种专业知识并不一定和专业课程内容列出的內容同样。能意识到这一点的学生更非常容易将自身的专业融进到工作中,而且寻找一个适合的岗位。”

3. Visual Communication

3.视觉设计

Only 29 percent of visual communication majors would recommend this to students. Majoring in visual communication may involve creating artwork, learning about ad design and public relations, and studying layout. Graduates may go on to work in media, advertising, public relations or other fields。

仅有29%的学生推荐这一专业。视觉设计专业包含文艺创作,学习培训广告创意设计、公关和整体规划合理布局。毕业生将会会去文化传媒公司、广告传媒公司、公关活动公司或别的领域工作。

4. Social Science

4.人文科学

PayScale found 28 percent of social science majors would recommend the major to students。

PayScale发觉仅有28%的人际关系专业学生会推荐本专业。

“I am a former social science major who has since advised against it,” says recruiting consultant Sarah Merrill at Atrium Staffing. “I won’t say that you don’t learn anything from a social science major, but you certainly don’t learn practical knowledge that can be applied to a wide range of jobs。”

招骋咨询顾问Saral Merill“我之前是一个人际关系专业学生,自此潜心黑它三十年。也不是说你从这一专业中全都学不上,可是沒有可以运用在更普遍的工作领域内的好用专业知识。”

“When I talk to students now I advise them to think about what they can actually use in the future -- courses on personal finance, marketing, business,” she explains. “There was a course offered at my university on business writing that I have heard was the hands-down most useful course ever taken because of a whole section on email etiquette。”

“当我与学生沟通交流的情况下,我能提议她们考虑一下究竟什么才算是她们未来会采用的物品――应该是个人理财规划,网络营销及其商务接待课程内容。我上大学的情况下有一门商务接待写作课,毫无疑问就是我登过最好用的课程内容,因为它有一全部章节目录都会教电子邮箱标准。”

5. Journalism

5.新闻学

Only 27 percent of journalism graduates would recommend the major. Difficulties facing print media and the time it takes to break out of entry-level positions can be downers for grads. People with journalism degrees can also end up in marketing, sales, academia or other jobs if they decide to leave the newsgathering business。

仅有27%的新闻系毕业生推荐了此专业。纸版新闻媒体遭遇的困境,及其新手入门所耗的時间都让毕业生觉得消沉。新闻报道专业出生的人假如决策舍弃与新闻报道有关的工作,最终也会在网络营销、市场销售、学术研究或别的行业工作。
