Buyer’s remorse is never fun, but it’s particularly painful when it comes with the time and cost of getting a college education.

买完想剁手的感觉总是令人痛苦,比如耗费了大量时间和金钱的大学教育。

To help you avoid this stinging regret, PayScale has ranked the majors college alumnirecommend least. If you have your heart set on one of these, you don’t necessarily have to change course -- just do your research on job prospects so your dreams aren’t dashed after graduation day.

为了避免这种情况,PayScale为毕业生最不推荐的专业做了个排名。如果你正倾心于其中一个专业,也没必要特地变更课程——你只需要做好职业前景调查,免得梦碎毕业时分。

1. Anthropology

1.人类学

According to PayScale’s data, 35 percent of anthropology majors wouldn’t recommend it to current students.

根据PayScale的调查数据,35%的人类学学生不愿向新生推荐本专业。

“People typically regret majoring in anthropology because they have a preconceivednotion that there is a direct and specific job title perfectly correlating to it,” says training and development consultant Farrah Parker. “Instead of recognizing the broad spectrum  of careers that they can pursue, they focus on their inability to find a career with an exact reference to their major.”

培训及发展顾问Farrah Parker称:“大多数人后悔选了人类学,因为大家原先觉得会肯定有与之对口的职业。学生们只想找一个和专业关系密切的职位,却不想在更宽泛的领域内找工作。”

Anthropology majors could consider work in community organizations or government, for example, or combine the major with others to make themselves more marketable.

人类学学生可以考虑在社区机构或者政府工作,或者结合其他专业来学习以适应市场需求。

2. History

2.历史

This major is recommended by only 33 percent of its graduates. Many history majors go on to work in academia, or may find jobs with government agencies, libraries or organizations dedicated to the period they studied.

只有33%的毕业生推荐了这个专业。很多历史系学生成为学者或者在政府机关、图书馆或者其他组织工作,并且一生致力于研究他们所研究的历史阶段。

Parker says it’s important for graduates to keep their options open after graduation. “Peoplewith narrow definitions of career paths find themselves regrettingmajors,” she says. “However, those who recognize that the workforceis full of positions that require expertise outside of what may beformally listed in a course catalog find themselves in a perfectposition to brand their college major in whatever manner they seefit.”

Parker说对于毕业生来说,在选择工作时保持一个开放的心态非常重要。“把职业道路限定得过窄的人容易对自己的专业不满。工作中到处都需要一些额外的专业知识,而这些知识并不一定和专业课程所列的内容相同。能意识到这点的学生更容易将自己的专业融入到工作中,并且找到一个合适的职位。”

3. Visual Communication

3.视觉设计

Only 29 percent of visual communication majors would recommend this to students. Majoring in visual communication may involve creating artwork, learning about ad design and public relations, and studying layout. Graduates may go on to work in media, advertising, public relations or other fields.

只有29%的学生推荐这个专业。视觉设计专业包括艺术创作,学习广告设计、公共关系和规划布局。毕业生可能会去传媒公司、广告公司、公关公司或其他领域工作。

4. Social Science

4.社会科学

PayScale found 28 percent of social science majors would recommend the major to students.

PayScale发现只有28%的社会关系专业学生会推荐本专业。

“I am a former social science major who has since advised against it,” says recruiting consultant Sarah Merrill at Atrium Staffing. “I won’t say that you don’t learn anything from a social science major, but you certainly don’t learn practical knowledge that can be applied to a wide range of jobs.”

招聘顾问Saral Merill“我以前是一个社会关系专业学生,此后专注黑它三十年。也不是说你从这个专业中什么都学不到,但是没有能够应用在更广泛的工作领域内的实用知识。”

“When I talk to students now I advise them to think about what they can actually use in the future -- courses on personal finance, marketing, business,” she explains. “There was a course offered at my university on business writing that I have heard was the hands-down most useful course ever taken because of a whole section on email etiquette.”

“当我和学生交流的时候,我会建议他们考虑一下到底哪些才是他们将来会用到的东西——应该是个人理财,市场营销以及商务课程。我读大学的时候有一门商务写作课,无疑是我上过最实用的课程,因为它有一整个章节都在教电子邮件规范。”

5. Journalism

5.新闻学

Only 27 percent of journalism graduates would recommend the major. Difficulties facing print media and the time it takes to break out of entry-level positions can be downers for grads. People with journalism degrees can also end up in marketing, sales, academia or other jobs if they decide to leave the newsgathering business.

只有27%的新闻系毕业生推荐了此专业。纸质媒体面临的窘境,以及入门所花的时间都让毕业生感到沮丧。新闻专业出身的人如果决定放弃与新闻相关的工作,最后也会在市场营销、销售、学术或其他行业工作。
