These 41 Slogans Describe Their College Majors Perfectly

College MajorsCollege majors are abundant, though not all offer the same bang for your education dollar. In fact, there have been numerous reports since 2012 that a good skill-based career can earn you the same amount of money as a bachelor’s degree in many fields of higher education.
