From a young age, everyone's parents have probably been saying how important it is to get an education. You go elementary school, head off to middle school, graduate high school and then have to decide if you will get a degree and what type. This decision may be easy for some, but when looking at the amount of school that it will take to earn a certain degree, other are easily discouraged from earning anything above an associate's.
Depending on your career choice, the journey doesn't stop after earning a bachelor's degree because they might just need another two or more years of school under your belt before you can start working in your field of choice and settle into your career. Although this is the route some people choose to take, those who stick to only a bachelor's degree are just as able to find a high-paying job as those with more education.

The major that you choose can have a huge impact on your financial future. Of course, picking a good school may seem like the most important thing when you are first applying to colleges, but you will also want to give it some real thought as to what you will major in, whether or not you will be content making the amount of money that most people in that specific field make on a yearly basis and if a bachelor's degree is the only degree you want to obtain. Money doesn't need to be the only motivator, but it is something that many people factor into their decision.
