What’s the value of your degree in dollars? Does your major matter? According to a recent study conducted by Georgetown’s Center on Education and the Workforce, yes, your major mattersâ€”majorly. The study, which is based on newly-released 2009 Census Bureau data, ties salary data to undergraduate majors across a person’s lifetime. And while it’s no shock that bachelor’s degree-holders earn more than those with only high school diplomas, the report shows that there’s a huge income gap between the highest- and lowest-earning majors. Also surprising is the lack of correlation between the highest-earning majors and those majors that are the most popular.
