You probably already know college grads have an easier time finding jobs, and earn more those who only have a high school diploma. But that's not the whole story. Some college majors offer a much worse return on investment, with starting salaries that are no better than high school grads' pay, according to a
new study released Wednesday. The study, conducted by the
Georgetown University Center on Education and The Workforce, looked at 2010 and 2011 salaries and unemployment rates among college grads between the ages of 22 and 26. The startling conclusion: Some majors have starting salaries no better than the average salary of a high school grad, which is about $29,900 a year, according to the
U.S. Department of Education.
