The report itself (http://www9.georgetown.edu/grad/gppi...al.update1.pdf
) shows that as a whole, recent psychology and social work grads combined have an unemployment rate of 7.6%, which drops to 3.4% for graduate degree holders in those fields.
And while 7.6% isn't great, it's not much higher than most other degrees on the list, and is actually much lower than humanities and even some engineering majors.
