Transferable Skills by Major

Transferable skills are skills like critical thinking, analysis, and communication skills which are honed through major coursework and a liberal arts education.

These are highly sought after by employers and graduate schools alike.  Each major not only provides the knowledge specific to that field, but also a mental framework which you will use to tackle indirectly related problems.  In addition, each document contains example professional positions that individuals who graduated with each major have held in the work force. These were taken from real data.
