College students have a lot on their plate when deciding what career path to take. Plus, with recent graduates shouldering an average student loan debt of $29,800 each, the pressure to find high-paying jobs is high. According to CNN Money, the average salary for the class of 2018 in the United States was just barely over $50,000. However, this is just a broad estimate for all majors. Career site Zippia created a list of the 50 highest paying majors for 2019, as well as an average of how much graduates with each of these degrees can hope to make annually.

Zippia used microdata samples from the American Community Survey to find average annual incomes by major, and narrowed their research to employees aged 29 to 31 who had been working for a full year. This allowed the grads a couple of years to settle into their field and not have to report entry-level salaries. With that, they were able to come up with a list of the highest-paid versus the lowest-paid majors.

The majority of highest paying majors have one thing in common: science. It is no surprise that out of the top 10 of the majors, seven of them are science-based, including petroleum engineering ($169,680), engineering mechanics ($90,085), and geoscience ($89,799). However, just because many science majors bring in higher paychecks, that does not mean all of them will: among the lowest paying majors, Zippia found the average salary for educational psychology, library science, and social psychology majors hovers around $30,000.
