Undergraduate Degree By Salary: Geologists Not Doing Too Badly

PayScale College Salary Report has published a list of best undergraduate college degree by salary for the United States. Undergraduates who go on to earn a Master's or a PhD are not included in this survey.

Annual pay for Bachelors graduates without higher degrees. Typical starting graduates have 2 years of experience; mid-career have 15 years. See full methodology for more.

Among the pure sciences, physics, statistics, math and biochemistry are ranked higher but geology comes next with a starting median salary of $ 45,100 and a mid career median salary of $ 84,200.
