    It seems that there is a natural bias towards the STEM subjects in those attaining graduate jobs. Starting salaries for STEM tend to be higher and there are (from my experiences) more opportunities available to Science subjects than Historians.

    Just how accurate are my observations? How disadvantaged will a History graduate be compared say to a Chemistry/Physics grad who completed a four year integrated Masters?
