How Much Is Your Degree Really Worth?

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.
