One of the most important decisions of a college student’s career is selecting a major. And there are a lot of options for undergraduate students today. From biochemistry to marketing, most students have dozens – if not hundreds – of disciplines to consider. If your transcript currently says your major is “undecided” or “undeclared,” check out this “Major Decisions” infographic to discover the best college majors, job statistics, highest-paying college degrees and career paths.
When it comes time to choose a major, expected salary after graduation is often a major consideration – but it shouldn’t be the only one. In addition to finding a career that’s fulfilling, you should also consider the availability of jobs in your field. Lawyers may have a high average salary, but there’s evidence to suggest that there are currently more law graduates than available jobs. Most of these careers require a bachelor’s degree, and, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, are projected to see increasing demand through 2020.
