13 Most Useless College Majors

The Daily Beast offers the 13 most useless college majors, including statistics to back it up.  Since many are about to graduate with these expensive and generally useless sheepskins, I'll just offer you the major and the recent graduate unemployment rate:
  1. Fine Arts - 12.6%
  2. Drama and Theater Arts - 7.8%
  3. Film, Video and Photographic Arts - 12.9%
  4. Commercial Art and Graphic Design - 11.8%
  5. Architecture - 13.9% (George Constanza would be very disappointed.)
  6. Philosophy and Religious Studies - 10.8%
  7. English Literature and Language - 9.2%
  8. Journalism - 7.7%
  9. Anthropology and Archaeology - 10.5%
  10. Hospitality Management - 9.1%
  11. Music - 9.2% (note:  this is Music Performance, not Music Education)
  12. History - 10.2%
  13. Political Science and Government - 9.1% (they used a photo of John Kerry in the article - easily one of the most useless government figures)
You can read the article to get more information, including the unemployment rates for experienced graduates and projected earnings.
