Top 9 Degrees with Starting Pay of $50K+ for Less Than $15K

All to frequently, college students take on thousands of dollars of debt to complete a college degree which ends up not paying for itself out in the real world. In his new book College Unbound, author Jeffrey Selingo states, "On average, students leave college with $27,000 in loans—and the top 1% owe more than $150,000...Since 2007, the average age of marriage is also on the rise—up from 27.5 to 28.7 for men and from 25.6 to 26.5 for women. Conversely, fertility rates and home ownership among young adults continues to drop."


Since student loans can have such lasting impact on the lives of the debtor, they should not be accepted passively or ignorantly. The first step in taking on debt is planning how you're going to be able to pay it back. Oftentimes, high school graduates who are earning lower incomes but are debt free come out better than college graduates earning higher incomes but are strapped with debt. Of course, those who take on the debt and fail to complete the degree are worst off of all.

Thankfully, the National Association of Colleges and Employers has provided a list of starting salaries by academic major for bachelor's degree graduates. MSN shares the top 15 bachelor's degree majors with starting pay of $50,000+, and we turn this into a 1-2 punch by sharing the 9 degrees on the list that can be completed with the guidance of the Accelerate University program for less than $15,000!

The degrees in the list below can all be completed at one of the fully accredited colleges we utilize in the AU program. On your own, you can expect to spend 4 years and about $40K for degree completion. With the help of the Accelerate University Program, you could complete one of these degrees in just 1 to 2 years and spend less than $15K doing it--from beginning to end. How? Well...that's just what we do!

Our team has figured out the quickest, most cost-effective ways of completing a college degree without sacrificing the quality of learning. In fact, most clients who have spent time in the classroom prior to coming to AU report their quality of learning inside the AU Program soars way above their classroom experience. So, take a look through the list of possible degrees with their average starting pay reported for 2012.
