Want a Good Job? A University Degree is Still Indispensable

The latest survey from Ontario’s provincial government has found that graduates with an undergraduate degree still have higher employment rates and higher incomes than any other level of education. 85% of graduates had jobs in their fields within six months, and 92% did within two years.

According to the survey (pdf alert), the best programs for finding a job were forestry, dentistry, optometry, and veterinary medicine. Oddly enough theology, which had a scant 84% employment rate six months after graduation, increased to 100% by two years. Other programs with employment rates in the mid-eighties that increased to the low-nineties two years after graduation include physical sciences, mathematics, fine arts, and engineering.
