Don’t go to a Virginia university and major in philosophy, theatre, or dance. If you do you can expect to still be earning minimum wage 5 years after you graduate:
From the RTD article linked above:
>>>Some majors never provide a financial return on investment. Those students would have earned more money across their lifetimes had they saved the $100,000 or so in tuition costs, started earning a paycheck four years earlier and begun climbing the wage ladder sooner.
Nearly one in four college majors in Virginia fails to provide a lifetime return on investment, according to the study. The majors least likely to provide a financial windfall are psychology, biology, fine arts, drama, English and social work. The schools that house the highest number of negative-ROI majors are Liberty University, VCU, University of Mary Washington and Radford University.
The majors that provide the highest ROI tend to focus on science, technology, engineering, math and business. Several nursing programs are near the top of the list, too.
You don’t have to go to a prestigious school or an expensive school to get a good-paying job. High-earning majors are found at VCU, Old Dominion University and for-profit schools such as ECPI University.<<<
It’s too bad our K12 schools have terrible math programs that don’t prepare students to major in the high-paying STEM fields and Democrats continue to destroy the schools that do, such as Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST).
