Graduates with Music degrees maintain an increasing unemployment rate in recent years. Why is this you ask? Less and less popular artists and musicians pursuing this degree – they simply go out and prove their talent to any audience they can whether it’s online, at America’s Got Talent, or at a local coffee shop (just to name a few). Many people are fooled into thinking once they graduate with a Music degree they will earn a recording deal, and this just is not the case. Unless you have a passion for teaching Music at any level, we wouldn’t recommend this major in the near future!
