    What types of courses or field of discipline flourish both in good and hard times?

    Most college freshmen students evaluate their options when choosing what courses or field of study to take. What are some of the field of studies that are not affected by some socio economic changes and are relevant in different times?

    Excellent question.  I think that anyone taking STEM majors (science, technology, engineering and math) will be better off than any other major.  Even if their particular branch of work gets slow, their skills are valued in many areas and they can also get much higher pay as consultants or teachers if they turn to that route.  If you are a U.S. citizen and a native English speaker, you will have a much easier time getting into graduate school (and getting paid to be a graduate student!) if you are a STEM major.  U.S. Universities have a hard time filling slots with U.S. citizens and often end up taking many graduates from other countries, but they really do want to train their own students if they can get them to apply.

    As for the best paying careers that have lasting power, most types of engineering, medical careers, particularly nursing and physical therapy and information technology. The market for computer programmers and other like careers keeps on growing. Multilingual people often have a step up when applying for almost any position when compared to a comparable candidate without a second language.

    It has to be technology, medical, and engineering, which have remained unaffected even in a volatile economy. These fields continue to have a good job outlook and that’s the reason students choose to make a career in them. California College San Diego has several degree programs in healthcare, business, and IT to choose from which might help students achieve their career goals. Read up on some California College San Diego reviews if you wish to know more about the college.
