Majors That Matter

10 Best College Majors for Your PersonalityMany professionals long for a more fulfilling job, and when many students envision their future they see themselves making a difference in their community and the lives of others.

Jobs that matter are in high demand, and few people fall into them. If you’re already in the workforce and want a more meaningful career, you may need to acquire new training or return to school. If you’re a student, you’ll want to choose a major that complements the purpose you feel passionate about—that may be helping others, improving the environment or changing policies for the greater good.

Occupational expert Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D., identified college majors that tend to put people on paths to world-improving jobs in his recently released book 10 Best College Majors for Your Personality, Second Edition. Here are 10 of the college majors he selected, based on data he gathered from the Department of Labor.
