Econ Major

There are many reasons to choose a major and at my undergraduate institution marketability and earning potential were definitely not considered good reasons.  Nevertheless, the economics major appears to endow students with a set of skills that the market values highly.  What I like about economics is the variety of things you can do with it.  It is not an easy major - when I was at the U of Colorado, economics and physics classes had the lowest grade point averages - but the effort is well worth it.

Econ majors are suckers. I have found that with my Religious Studies major/English minor combo, I've done remarkably well in the job market. $25k's good, right?
