These U.S. Colleges and Majors Are the Biggest Waste of Money

Derek Thompson:

This morning we published a review of recent research by PayScale on the most valuable colleges and majors in America, based on self-reported earnings by individuals who graduated from hundreds of schools.
 Some of you asked: What about the least valuable colleges and majors in America? What a mischievous question! So we looked into that, too.
 Here are the eleven schools in PayScale’s data with a 20-year net return worse than negative-$30,000. In other words: these are the schools where PayScale determined that not going to college is at least $30,000 more valuable than taking the time to pay for and graduate from one of these schools.
