Job Satisfaction by majorThis list shows the percentages of people who are satisfied with their job, after graduating in each major. It also shows the % who feel that things are generally going well.
A variety of factors -- such as number of years past graduation, whether or not they stayed in field/major, and the number of people surveyed affects this number. We did not survey for personal factors such as marital, health, etc.

Archaeology Major unemployment rate
More: Unemployment for all Majors *** not counting stay at home parents *** not counting those currently in grad school
Are things going well in Archaeology?
More: All Majors Satisfaction ??? This is a social "life satisfaction" question. Overall, would people who graduated with a degree in Archaeology say that their life is going well? It could be interpreted in terms of stress, salary, long hours, future prospects, etc. *** not counting those currently in grad school
Graduates who stayed in Archaeology
More: All Majors Still in field ??? A high "got out" percentage can be interpreted a couple of ways -- for instance, perhaps the major is a great stepping stone to becoming a totally different career -- like a doctor. Or perhaps the jobs one gets with the major just aren't that great. *** not counting those currently in grad school
