When choosing a college major, students take several elements into account, including what they're most interested in and which fields complement their natural skills. But it's important not to overlook an important factor: future job opportunities.

With classes resuming for the fall, job-posting site Indeed compiled a list of majors that lead to "jobs of the future" — positions that pay $57,700 per year or more and saw at least 25% wage growth between 2004 and 2014.

Indeed found that these jobs represent positions that are at a low risk for automation, utilize transferable skills, and are in high demand by employers. Computer and information sciences earned the top spot on the list, thanks to high average annual salaries and skill sets that can be applied across industries.

Read on to see more jobs of the future, along with the majors that will help you get there.
