A study released by the Hamilton Project in September of this year shows just how important a degree when it comes to earning money. A bachelor’s degree in ANY field has proven to unleash your earning potential exponentially. As the study’s authors noted, median earnings of bachelor’s degree graduates are higher than median earnings of high school graduates for all 80 majors studied. This is true at career entry, mid-career, and end of career.

You can read the entire interesting study on the Hamilton Project website (link above). In the meantime, take a look at this chart that details which degrees earn you the most over your lifetime – and which earns you the least.

Note: Unfortunately, this study is currently not available in French.
