CTAHR majors are in demand

Get a Job!

In the June 26 article “College Majors with the Lowest Unemployment,” USA Today listed 25 majors whose graduates are highly employable, along with their average salaries. Members of our ‘ohana will be gratified to learn that no fewer than six of these majors are offered by CTAHR! Alumni in these fields are well on their way to finding fulfilling and gainful employment. The stats:

  • Biological Engineering graduates have a low 1.58% unemployment rate, with an average salary of almost $70K.
  • Animal Sciences alumni have a 1.52% unemployment rate, with an average salary of $59K.
  • Soil Science grads have a 1.40% unemployment rate, with an average salary of $52K.
  • Health and Medical Preparatory majors, including pre-vets, have a 1.70% unemployment rate, with an average salary of $99K.
  • Miscellaneous Agriculture graduates have a 1.35% unemployment rate, with an average salary of $45K.
  • Of all majors on the list, Agricultural Economics grads have the second lowest unemployment rate, 0.74%, with an average salary of $71K.

As many CTAHR students know, the college offers much more than a ticket to a career. But articles like this one are a great encouragement to students to consider CTAHR programs.
