At the risk of incurring the wrath of humanities types who are loath to put a dollar sign on the "pricelessness" of what they/we offer, here is a great report on which majors pay how much:
Mostly common sense: engineering majors make more than any other group. Wide variance within the Humanities, with History at the top (yeah!) with $57,000 and Theology/Religious Vocations at the bottom. The latter, of course, "store up their treasure in heaven." If you exclude the heaven-rich category, Intercultural or International Studies is the lowest paid degree.
Just as my college kicks off a Global Studies focus. I knew it would be a hard sell, up there with "I spent four years learning how to 'sustain' the Earth!"
