Scroll through the occupations to see which degrees or courses of study will prepare the applicant for that occupation and the minimum degree level (e.g. Associate, Bachelor's, Master's, etc.) required.

In this classification system the education and training required reflects the manner in which most workers become proficient in that occupation and the preferences of most employers.

The Annual Projected openings include estimates for new and replacement jobs.

Cells with N/A reflect the fact that California colleges did not grant a degree matched to that course of study in the most recent year. Visit our Postsecondary Education Value page to explore another important reason to obtain a degree.
