Brocker.Org: This graph shows how much money you can earn from each college major


Student-loan debt in the US has grown to a

$1.3 trillion
, and the
average 2016 graduate

will have to repay more than $37,000.

Now more than ever, it seems that college students must
think carefully about choosing their college majors and the
future earning power of their chosen degrees.

With that in mind,
PayScale compiled data on lifetime earnings

of different majors and degrees to show the future
financial impact on a particular course of study.

For bachelor’s degrees, engineering majors seem to be the most
lucrative, with petroleum engineering, systems engineering, and
chemical engineering in the top three. Actuarial mathematics also
tied for the third place slot.

Take a look below to see where your major and degree lands among
the group.
