I'm a geology major... Why would you study something you have no use for?

BS in geology in 09. Hired two weeks later and live very comfortably.

Ignorance of career options doesn't make any particular major useless.

Except communications majors

History major in progress here. And most anything you find interesting you can teach. There is a nice job for just about every major.

the question is, does the job you take justify the tuition you paid and the level of debt you may have.

Hands down. I'm going to be making 50k-70k more per year with just a teaching job than I make now. And my whole college education (with two years community college, and at state schools) is going to cost me less than 100k.

And I would imagine that the pay bump makes it far more worth it, not even including the value of the opportunity to have a job in a subject you're actually interested in. Because in my opinion that's the really important part. It's my understanding most people don't particularly want to be slinging pizzas, flipping burgers, or sweeping movie theaters for the entirety of their lives.

im a double major? i take a majority of music classes and a few criminal justice courses a week. My school has "ACE" requirements that fit in with both degrees, and it allows me to take the core for both and fill requirements using different classes from either degree.

Well that's cool. My experience with double majors has been that they have to have some class requirement overlap, or else you're working on then for 6 years. Which are you leaning towards with a career choice?

That's cool, and criminal justice is a solid backup plan. So I'd say you're set.
