From CNBC: The top 10 most-regretted college majors — and the degrees graduates wish they had pursued instead
Even with college application season in full swing, many families are questioning whether a four-year degree is still worth it.
Some experts say the value of a bachelor’s degree is fading and more emphasis should be directed toward career training. A growing number of companies, including many in tech, are also dropping degree requirements for many middle-skill and even higher-skill roles.
However, earning a degree is almost always worthwhile, according to “The College Payoff,” a report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.
Percentage of graduates who would pick a different major if they could:
Liberal arts/general studies 72%
Marketing management + research 60%
Medical/clinical assisting 58%
Political science + government 56%
English language + literature 52%
