Egyptology > all of the above

In all seriousness, it definitely depends on what you want to do and how you apply yourself. I'd put them all in the same tier of employability.

I meant the question as though someone may know the jobs you can get in each of these fields after graduating.
Criminology- Forensics.
Psychology- Counselling.

Etc..

if career prospects are your main goal from university then you're looking at the wrong type of degrees.
Is that not the main goal of anyone who goes to uni, their career at the end? No matter the subject of the degree.

I think out of all of those, Psychology is probably the best one career wise. I can't see Philosophy being a very good one.

neither are the most optimal options for job prospects. you'll be able to apply to generalist grad schemes that accept any degree but those types
if job prospects are your goals then do a degree apprenticeship or a degree like engineering, computer science, nursing, medicine, dentistry, actuarial science, accounting...
Doesn't an economics degree yield very good job prospects? Economics is a social science.

I'm not sure about economics. the statistics say Econ grads have high starting salaries but I feel the degree focuses too much on economic theory and very little on practical skills used in industry.
It's still a social science degree. The one with the best career prospects. The stats show. End of story. You'd better include it with medicine, desntistry, veterinary science, computer science, actuarial science etc.
