Federal Jobs by College Major

By USA Jobs

To help you choose the right career field, we have prepared the following table that groups Federal jobs that are often filled by college graduates with appropriate academic majors.

As you study the table, please keep these facts in mind: (1) The jobs listed under each major are usually examples, not an all-inclusive list. (2) Many jobs do not require a college degree; job-related experience is just as good. And (3), you can qualify for a large number of administrative jobs with a degree in any academic major. To illustrate this third point, we are leading off the table with a list of some of the most popular jobs for which any major is qualifying.
