ROI on College Degrees: Field of Study Matters More than Level of Degree

An article from Hey Tutor via the St. Louis Post Dispatch discusses why choosing a major is so important to future learning potential.

“While level of education is important, the individual program of study or major matters even more. According to the same Georgetown report, students who receive an associate’s degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) field have higher median annual earnings ($60,000) than students who receive a bachelor’s in a humanities/liberal arts field ($53,000), arts ($50,000), or psychology/social work ($47,000).”
