Jobs you need to go to college for that are likely to decline

If you are studying to earn a bachelor's degree in hopes of becoming a reporter, radio announcer, or computer programmer, it might be hard to find a job in the next several years because employment in these occupations are expected to shrink.

Every two years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases employment projections for the United States. These estimate how many people are likely to be employed in various jobs over the next decade.

The most recently released projections cover how employment is expected to change between 2018 and 2028. The projections also include typical educational requirements for each job. Using those projections, we found the 14 jobs that require a bachelor's degree or higher that the BLS projects will have a decline in employment over the decade.

Reporters are expected to see the largest job decline from 2018 to 2028 at 12.1%, followed by adult basic and secondary education and literacy teachers and instructors at 10.3%.
