Degrees of the 21st Century [Infographic]

There are many areas of study that barely existed until the 21st century and are now exploding in terms of job growth. For example, digital forensics and cyber security are two fields that have gotten a lot of press in the last fifteen years because of dramatic television shows, but that doesn’t make them any less viable as a career choice.

Security is clearly a big issue, because not only is cyber security growing fast, homeland security is also another area that people may not have been aware of until recently. In fact, since 9/11, over 75 schools offer undergraduate degrees in homeland security. Another rising field is that of environment studies and sustainability, which has also garnered a lot of attention in the past decade due to public policy debates.
