Some charts to check out before deciding on a college major

by Grace

Students who are deciding on a college major may want to look at some charts linked by Business Insider.

… tons of information is out there about majors, employment and earnings. We’ve pulled out findings from a report by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.

Some information is practical.

You can see where the men are . . .

. . . where the women are . . .

. . . and what white people like

Admittedly, not all the charts are very practical, but they are interesting.  The point is, choosing a major should involve some research.  The full report can be linked here:  What’s it Worth? The Economic Value of College Majors
