I've found that it's not so much the major field of study that is important, but the fact that you have a four year degree!!! My dual undergrad degrees are in Sports Medicine and Exercise Physiology--with that I was a Health Club Manager, Personal Trainer, Aquatic Director (strong swimming background), and prior to becoming a SAHM, a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep Trainer! That same degree also allowed me to be a Substitute Teacher, and was the basis for my being able to to pursue my state teaching credentials as a Special Education teacher (which I became last fall)--and I earned those degrees 20+ years ago!!! I also earned a Master's Degree 15+ years ago, but it wasn't as "valuable" as my BS Degree! Go figure! :o)
Bottom line, with that degree in hand, you can pursue just about ANY field you are interested in--which is great, given the current economy and double digit unemployment! You may find a new passion all together!
