9 degrees that get you to $100k the quickest
Deciding on a college major is difficult -- should you follow your passions, or should you choose a four-year degree that promises to net a high salary?

And here's a surprise: It's not just those often-touted engineering degrees that make the cut -- liberal-arts degrees are well-represented, too. -- By Monster Staff
