How many times do we hear about young people graduating with a bachelor’s degree that turns out worthless because they can’t even find anything in their field. You were probably served coffee by one of them at a Starbucks today. So people think of continuing their education. How could you go wrong if you go for a master’s degree? Well, you can.

According to an article by Charyn Pfeuffer of Payscale.com, the following five master’s degrees are the worst paying.

  1. Master’s in Counseling
  2. Master’s in Social Work
  3. Master’s in Music
  4. Master’s in Library and Information Science
  5. Master’s in Education

Did you graduate with one of these degrees? Have you had a hard time making that degree pay off? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
