There's a great deal of uncertainty for college students when it comes to picking a major - in part because some jobs won't be in high demand four years down the line.

But according to career site Zippia , which used US census data to estimate the unemployment rate for people 22 to 25 years old in various fields, there are several areas of study that make securing a job much easier.

The majors mostly involve education and the sciences, which tend to have understaffed pockets in more niche roles.

Here are the college majors with the lowest unemployment rates.
 
 
 

Social Science Or History Teacher Education — 1%

 
Social Science Or History Teacher Education — 1%
Among the specialized forms of education that are in high demand, adult education is one that all but guarantees a job.

People who teach others how to enter into teaching, specifically social sciences and history, land jobs 99% of the time, according to the sample.

Natural Resources Management — 2%

 
Natural Resources Management — 2%

Climate change is creating a growing demand for people who protect the natural environment and work to ensure humans don't deplete resources.

Of the 100 people in the Census survey, just two people who majored in natural resources management didn't have jobs.

Special Needs Education — 3.11%

 
Special Needs Education — 3.11%

There is high demand for people who are qualified to work with special-needs students. According to some experts, many teachers working in the space lack the proper credentials.

"This is a nationwide need," Michael Humphrey, chair of the Special Education Department at Boise State University in Idaho, told USA Today in 2015.

 

Communication Disorders Sciences And Services — 3.48%

 
Communication Disorders Sciences And Services — 3.48%

Though less well-known by their major title, these graduates often go on to become speech therapists and other aides for people with hearing or language disabilities.

They also research disabilities and help develop therapies for other practitioners to implement.

Elementary Education — 3.63%

 
Elementary Education — 3.63%

One exception where it pays not to specialize is elementary education. Among the 799 people surveyed, only 29 lacked jobs.

 

Nursing — 3.81%

 
Nursing — 3.81%

Nursing graduates seldom have trouble landing jobs, typically because hospitals and other medical facilities constantly need robust staff to deal with patients.

In 2013, nursing majors had the lowest unemployment rate in the US.

 

Animal Sciences — 3.97%

 
Animal Sciences — 3.97%

This job deals with creating or refining therapies for animals, in addition to protecting them and studying their behaviors.

Breeding or managing farm animals also falls under the umbrella of animal science.

Language and Drama Education — 4.11%

 
Language and Drama Education — 4.11%

Teaching can present an array of opportunities if you're willing to specialize.

Zippia has found that among the 146 people in its Census sample, there were only six people who lacked jobs in teaching foreign languages or theater.

The group's unemployment rate is roughly equal to the national unemployment rate.

Biochemical Sciences — 4.22%

 
Biochemical Sciences — 4.22%

Slightly more employable were people working in biomedical sciences, a branch of STEM that typically involves lab workers performing research and working on drug development and testing.

Biomedical scientists also help design new technologies that can aid in improving public health.

 

Civil Engineering — 4.29%

 
Civil Engineering — 4.29%

Engineers cropped up a lot in Zippia's rankings.

Out of the six total engineering majors, including mechanical, chemical, and general engineering, civil engineering came with the lowest unemployment rate.

Civil engineers focus on designing and maintaining physical structures, such as bridges and roadways.

Physics — 4.49%

 
Physics — 4.49%

Physics majors typically land jobs at universities or independent research labs.

With a gap in the labor market for degree holders in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), physics is just one of many hard science majors that can offer job security.

The unemployment rate is still higher than the national rate, however.
