This is the most regrettable college major in America

Plus, the No. 1 thing that people regret about their college experience

By Catey Hill

College may come with a side of regret.

A new survey of nearly 250,000 Americans with at least a bachelor’s degree by career and salary website PayScale found that two-thirds said that they had a major regret about their educational experience. The No. 1 regret: student loans, which about one in four grads say they regretted, according to PayScale. (A separate survey this year of more than 2,700 adults up to age 34 by Merrill Lynch and Age Wave came to a similar conclusion: more than one in three said the student loans they took on weren’t worth it.)

No wonder: Student loan debt now totals upwards of $1.5 trillion, up from $600 billion just 10 years ago. The average student who graduates with debt now owes about $30,000.

Your college major can be a big source of regret too, PayScale found. It was the second most regretted thing about the college experience, with more than one in 10 people saying their chosen area of study was their biggest educational regret.

And the area of study that comes with the biggest side of regret: humanities. Indeed, more than one in five people who majored in humanities — which includes specific majors like English and history — say they regret that choice. Other research bolsters this finding, revealing that English in particular is the most regretted major, as MarketWatch previously reported.

Why might those studying humanities wish they hadn’t? “This may have to do with the relatively low salaries seen by common professions of humanities majors,” the PayScale report revealed. Indeed, research from Georgetown University shows that people who study humanities and liberal arts tend to make significantly less than those who study other things like STEM or business.

Meanwhile, computer science and engineering majors had the lowest level of regret with just 4% and 8%, respectively, saying they regretted their major. “Fields that lead into high-earning or high-meaning jobs did see a larger portion of respondents that had no regrets about college,” according to the report.

Of course, plenty of those who majored in humanities go on to have well-paying jobs they like, and there are certainly some STEM majors who wish they hadn’t studied it. Plus the skills learned in humanities courses can be applicable to many jobs.

The fact that so many people now regret their student loans, or regret their major that resulted in a low-paying job, means it’s often no longer enough to just pick a major you love, experts say. “A person should really ask themselves, ‘why am I going to school?’ If the answer is to obtain a job, I would ask, ‘Is the job you are attempting to get worth the cost of the degree?’,” says certified financial planner Mitchell C. Hockenbury of 1440 Financial Partners in Kansas City, Mo. “You ought to think about how much you will make versus the cost of paying for the education.”

這個大學科系 最多人後悔讀

什麼大學科系最多人後悔讀?大學畢業的過來人,哪些事最讓他們「悔不當初」?

「薪資等級」網站(PayScale)調查了近25萬學士學位以上的美國人,發現最多人後悔的是借了學生貸款──幾乎四分之一受調者說,他們不該借錢念大學或研究所。

第二多人後悔的是選錯科系來念。這種人超過十分之一。哪一科系他們最後悔念了?人文科系。超過五分之一人文科系畢業的人說,他們不該主修英文、歷史等「不賺錢」的科系。

財經網站MarketWatch調查也發現,尤其英文系畢業生,最後悔主修英文。

為什麼?「薪資等級」網站和喬治城大學研究都有相同的結論:收入遠低於理工商科主修者,是主要原因。

相對而言,電腦科學和理工科畢業生後悔念錯科系的比例最低,各佔4%和8%。理由是,畢業後可以找到高收入、有意義的工作。

當然,也有不少人文科系畢業生找到高收入、有意義的工作,也有理工商醫科畢業而後悔的人,何況人文「素養」運用在別行別業的,也大有人在。

專家說,這麼多人後悔背學貸、念錯科系,表示這年頭,念書不是挑你喜歡念的科系,就可以讓你從事高薪、有意義的工作。




密蘇里州堪薩斯市的理財專家霍肯貝瑞(Mitchell Hockenbury)說,入學之前,應該自問「我為什麼要上學?」如果答案是「為了找工作」,那你就要問,「我想找的工作,值得我花這筆錢拿到學位嗎?你該想想,我花這筆教育費用,今後可以賺多少?」兩相衡量,就不會「借錯」錢或選錯主修科系。
