Math and Science Degrees
College Courses Under the Microscope
Einstein would agree; it doesn't' take a genius to figure this out...
- "Math and Science degrees pay HUGE dividends."
By any measure, the empirical evidence shows getting a science or math degree opens-up a universe of nearly unlimited career and job opportunities. Math-Science degrees are top-of-the-academic food chain...and smart, career oriented students are eating it up.
And while conventional wisdom might dictate that most math majors become mathematicians, nothing could be further from the truth. CNN reports most mathematics degree holders enter computer science, engineering and economics. Others find secure, in-demand jobs in brokerage firms, investment banks, software and consulting firms.
Prestige jobs with prestige pay. General math majors holding just a Bachelor's degree earn 17% more than the average college graduate...a whopping $56,500. Science majors catch-up nicely to math counterparts and by year five, average around $58,000 annually.
In these demanding and high-paying fields, salaries seldom fall into a black hole. By the tenth year of employment, science majors average over $72,000 a year. Math majors average just under, hovering right around $70,000 annually by year ten
Your Computer Wants You
Forget Uncle Sam, it's the computer that's taking names and students too...to college...online college. Desktop, laptop and increasingly smart phones are replacing the brick & mortar campus experience. And why not? Online is convenient, efficient, time-saving, and completely interactive. Today's math and science college students are lining-up and clicking-on.
Online degrees carry weight with potential employers as well. Gone are the days when a Ivy-League degree was the only game in town. Today's top students and job holders are going digital and the results are nothing short of stellar.
