Are you still wondering if a bachelor in biomedical science degree is the right degree for you? If you are seeking strong earning potential, it sure is.
Georgetown University issued a report in 2015, which tracks income data for college graduates from various majors. Some of the report findings indicate that an undergraduate degree in a health or science field, such as biomedical sciences, can lead to higher paying careers, even without a graduate degree.
Here are some of the earnings data found for undergraduate science and health majors:
- STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), health, and business majors are the highest paying degrees, leading to average annual wages of $37,000 or more at the entry level and an average of $65,000 or more annually over the course of a recipient’s career.
- Entry-level college-educated workers aged 21-24 with health majors earn a median of $41,000 annually. For ages 25-59, this jumps to $65,000 annually.
- The median annual wages of college-educated workers with biology and life sciences majors (ages 25-50) is $56,000
Georgetown University also projects 5.6 million jobs in the healthcare sector by 2020, 82% of which will require a postsecondary education.
