Gettting Back to School: When it Comes to the Degree, is it Worth the Money?

I found a list today of college degrees that really aren’t worth the money. I find it interesting because I have sat in the front row of a lot of college bound kids and had to watch them follow their passion only to realize at graduation they’ll be filling out applications to the local grocery store or fast food chain. Getting back to school is more than new outfits and school supplies, it’s the start of the rest of your life.


  • Methodology: $122k just to get the degree
  • Sociology: Social Worker-$47k per year
  • Fine Arts: Museum Research Worker-$47k per year
  • Education: Elementary School Teacher-$52k per year
  • Theology: Religious Educator-$48k per year
  • Hospitality: Catering Manager-$43k per year
  • Nutrition: Dietician-$54k per year
  • Psychology: Human Services Worker-$23k per year
  • Communications: News Reporter-$37k per year

Of course you have to follow you heart and go for a career that offers passion and enough money to pay the bills, just thought that I would give you a real look at where some professions may lead you down the money trail or not.


  1. Advertising and Marketing: $108k per year
