College students graduate on average with more than $20,000 in debt by the time they earn their bachelor’s degree. It costs them even more to get advanced degrees such as master’s and doctorate degrees.
It makes sense, then, that new college students would want to study a field in which they can expect to make decent money. What degrees turn into the highest-paying careers? Try earning degrees in some form of engineering. If that isn’t your speed, you can shoot for degrees in physics, economics or computer science. They all turn into careers that, on average, pay quite well.

Over two decades after the devastating Exxon Valdez oil spill off the coast of Alaska, significant quantities of oil can still be found covering the state’s shores and beneath gravel beaches, a new study has discovered.
Over 21,000 gallons of crude oil remains of the 11 million gallons of crude oil that gushed from the stranded tanker Exxon Valdez on the night of 23 March 1989. Traces of Valdez’s oil have been detected as far as 724km away from the spill-site in Prince William Sound, and the toxic film that coats Alaska’s shores remain a danger to wildlife, entire eco-systems and the lives of local people.
