LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Regrets, do you have a few?

Many people do, at least as it concerns what they chose as their major in college.

44% of people looking for a job right now say they regret their college major choice.

That’s according to a new survey by Zip Recruiter.

The most regretted major is Journalism, followed by Sociology and Liberal arts.

On the flip side, the survey shows the happiest college grads are those who chose Computer and Information Sciences along with Criminology.

That’s followed closely by Engineering and Nursing.

Graduates say their feelings are closely tied to how likely it is to find jobs in those fields and the higher salaries that go with them.

Computer Science grads landing jobs can average nearly $100,000 a year across a wide range of industries.
