Based on the aspects of salary the best degrees are on social work, elementary education as well as theology. There are also degrees in music, hospitality/tourism as well as fine arts and drama which are all regarded to be among the best based on the salaries they came with. It is always advisable to go for a course that you have an interest in as this makes it possible to do the best in it and with passion. This is according to reference from http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505145_162-37240577/the-best-and-worst-college-degrees-by-salary/.
The best degree to get is the one that will give you a job in a field that you will love!! Remember that having a job isn't always about money(obviously its a factor), but it's about doing something you love doing so that it doesn't feel like work!! If you get a degree that will get you a good high paying job ,but makes you unhappy ,then what's the point?!?
