More at The Top 10 Worst College Majors, Definitively Ranked

PayScale ranked 130 different majors by salary potential (salary meaning total compensation including base salary, bonuses, profit sharing, commissions, and also overtime if applicable.) The numbers include full-time employees with a bachelor’s degree only, and over 1,000 colleges and universities were included from across the nation. For the purpose of our article, we are highlighting the bottom five on the list, which indicate the worst college majors for salary potential.

Child and Family Studies

Students studying child and family studies face a median starting salary of $29,300, and a mid-career salary $37,700. These salaries are very low, and many people without a college education could easily make this much or more each year. Students who choose to study this major do learn important life skills, including interpersonal, research, analysis, critical thinking, presentation, problem solving, and other skills. Although these skills might be important to some employers, you can learn them in many other majors as well — and probably make more money.

Social Work

Social workers also suffer from low salaries. According to the study, the median starting salary is $33,100, and $45,300 at the mid-career level. Social workers can do many different jobs and work at many different agencies, but again, many social workers work with children or disadvantaged populations. They face grueling work schedules, often with a lot of travel, and extremely stressful and emotional situations. Social workers help to keep families together and also to protect children who must be separated from their families.

Human Development

Some majors are very hard to market, and human development can be one if you have only a bachelor’s degree. Students learn written and oral communication skills, research, critical thinking, as well as other skills. These skills can help with a lot of career choices, but may not translate to a specific degree as quickly as a nursing or engineering degree. Human development majors also often end up working with children, either in a daycare setting or school setting.
