College dreams are changing as applicants face rising tuition, fewer and more restrictive student loans, and less financial help from their families. College graduates have lost their jobs and worry about defaulting on loans. These economic conditions have created a new pragmatic mindset toward college: Choose a major that leads to a job with staying power so I can pay off debt and prosper in good and bad times. With this new resource, readers learn about the 50 best college majors that connect to more than 100 secure careers. Best majors appear in more than 40 lists, ranked by pay and growth of related occupations, by bachelor's and higher degree levels, and by career cluster/interest area, personality type, gender, part-time work, and self-employment. A bonus list shows the best courses to improve an otherwise risky major.
