Aside from having fun, college is described as an environment to gain personal growth and become a ‘well-rounded’ individual. That’s fine if you are taking classes for your own personal enrichment. But what about the people who go to college in hopes of pursing a career?
For many individuals getting a college degree is the best step to achieving a well paying profession. Generally speaking; college graduates earn more money than individuals with just a high school diploma. However, with more college graduates facing lower paying jobs and increasing student loan debt; college can seem like a pretty worthless financial burden.
So, which degrees are worth pursing? According to theinvestmentdr.com these are the worst college degrees to get when seeking gainful employment (listed in no particular order):
The Worst College Degrees to Pursue
Hospitality and Tourism
Philosophy and Religious Studies
With America’s focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses; the above list should not come as a surprise. Education is a highly valuable asset and a great investment. However, if you are paying for college with loans you should ask yourself-is this investment for my own personal growth or can it lead to a financially rewarding career?
