Focusing too narrowly in college could backfire - WSJ.com

Focusing too narrowly in college could backfire - WSJ.com:

The Danger of Specialization is real:
Yes, in some fields, like engineering, the only way in is with a specialized degree. Other things being equal, students with one of these degrees will have an easier time getting their first job in the field than students with liberal-arts degrees. After the first job, though, it is not clear how much advantage that practical degree has.
And also interesting to found out that Information Systems is among the majors with highest unemployment rate. 
 So, STEM shortage is a myth after all?
