Obtaining an undergraduate degree is almost always worth it — bachelor’s degree holders earn 84% more than those with just a high school diploma.
However, not all majors are the same, ZipRecruiter found.
As tuition costs soar, more students and their families are asking themselves if college is still worth it.
Some experts say the value of a bachelor’s degree is fading. Starting salaries for new college graduates have grown less than 1% over the past two years, remaining at around $50,000.
Worse yet: A decade after leaving school, more than 1 in 5 graduates are working in a job that doesn’t even require a degree.
