Degrees that Don’t Pay

Articles like the one here are published all the time. “The Top 10 Least Productive College Degrees” or “Degrees that Don’t Pay the Bill” have been published recently in Time and on CNN. I think this article brings up an important point though. You shouldn’t do anything in life for the money – whatever you do should be because it makes you happy.

Also, it drives me insane when journalists and others say certain degrees do not pay enough. It is only the people that get the education that get to decide what career paths will pay enough for what THEY need. We do not all need the same things.

For some reason, Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons came to mind when I wrote this blog post. I’m not sure why. Read it and see if you can tell me. 🙂
