Which College Majors Lead to the Lowest Paying Jobs?

Some people go to college to pursue an education for a career that will bring them wealth, others pursue an education related to something they’re more passionate about.

Well if you pick one of these majors, make sure you truly are passionate about what you are studying as these majors can lead to the lowest paying jobs.

According to a recent Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce report “The Economic Value of College Majors”, here are some of the worse paying majors in college.

Early child education majors earn a median salary of $39,000, coming in at the lowest paying major.

Next is human services and community organization at a median salary of $41,000.

Most of the lowest earning majors are related to arts, education, consumer services, psychology, and social work.
