According to that great philosopher Yogi Berra, “In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.” Sometimes a degree is just a ticket to punch on the way to a career.
Having said that, which are the worst-paying degrees?
No surprise, engineering degrees continue to be top earners--and (also no big shocker) you have to go pretty far down the list before you see the liberal arts well represented.
9. Fine Arts
8. Hospitality and tourism
2. Elementary education
1. Social work
Definitely not a lot of scientists and engineers on that list.
