Title:  From Bachelor's Degree To Work: Major Field of Study and Employment Outcomes of 1992-93 Bachelor's Degree Recipients Who Did Not Enroll in Graduate Education by 1997
Description: This report investigates the relationship between undergraduate majors and early employment outcomes of 1992-93 college graduates who had not enrolled in graduate school within 4 years of obtaining their bachelor's degree (70 percent of all B.A. recipients). Outcomes include salaries earned in 1994 and 1997 (and the percentage increase in salary), job stability, job benefits in 1997 and satisfaction with employment. Engineering and computer science majors experienced very positive outcomes, while education and humanities and arts majors experienced relatively negative outcomes. Nursing majors reported very stable employment as did business and engineering majors.
