Computer Science
A lot of students think that a pure science degree limits you to a career in a lab. And while a lot of people I know have pursued careers in science research, science provides a solid foundation for analytical and critical thinking. It can be a stepping stone for a wide range of careers in business, the arts, technology, medicine--you name it.
