The Top 10 Worst College Majors



I majored in English because I love to read and write. I also chose it as my major because I thought it was broad enough to fit many different career paths. I also knew in my heart that I would end up in the broadcasting field. I'm fortunate to be doing what I love to do.

If you just graduated college, congratulations. No matter your major, finishing school is a great accomplishment. Lots of blood, sweat, tears and tuition money went into your diploma.

Unfortunately, not all majors are created equal. The one you have might be less than valuable out there in the job marketplace.

According to a survey from H&R Block, here are the least valuable college majors being offered – and earned – these days, based on unemployment stats:

1. Anthropology and Archaeology

2. Film/Video and Photographic Arts

3. Fine Arts

4. Philosophy and Religious Studies

5. Liberal Arts

6.  Music

7. Physical Fitness and Parks & Recreation

8. Commercial Art and Graphic Design

9.  History

10. English Language and Literature
