From Most Lucrative to Least Lucrative in One Major Change

The Most and Least Lucrative College Majors

Yesterday my wife sent me a link to an NPR Planet Money blog post which highlights the most and least lucrative college majors.

She sent me the post because the major I began college with, Chemical Engineering, and the major I ended with, Religious Studies, are both represented in NPRs graphs.

You’ll notice I moved from one extreme to the other in a decidedly southward direction.

We had a good laugh about it—she obviously didn’t marry me for my money or earning potential.
