So, a little bit of live blogging. Last week in the comments I posited that the highest paying Majors were not the Majors that graduated the most students.
- Mining and Mineral Engineering
- Metallurgical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Aerospace Engineering
- Mathematics and Computer Sciences
- Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Administration
- Petroleum Engineering
7 of the top 7 Majors are engineering. 8 of the top 10.
The other two are very technical majors.
Most Popular Majors
- Business Management and Administration
- General Business
- Elementary Education
- Marketing and Marketing Research
- General Education
- English Language and Literature
Not one in common. Not one.
My advice to Occupy?
Go to school and study a discipline that pays.
