25 college majors with the highest starting salaries!

Washington and Lee graduation(Washington and Lee University/Facebook) Salary potential shouldn't be the sole thing that attracts you to a major in college — things like passion, interest, and aptitude should also be considered. But it's still nice to know which degrees pay off the fastest. (And we can't blame you for being drawn to those.)
PayScale, the creator of the world's largest compensation database, recently looked at the early and mid-career pay for over a million college grads — including professionals who graduated with a bachelor's from 963 colleges and universities.
For its College Salary Report, which was compiled using data from employees who successfully completed PayScale's employee survey, PayScale sorted the results by school, degree, and college major.
Of the 25 majors with the highest starting salaries, 21 are engineering-focused.
"We've seen this same trend every year since we first launched the College Salary Report in 2008," says Lydia Frank, PayScale's editorial director.
"Engineering is a lucrative field that crosses many different industries," she tells Business Insider. "But even if engineering is your field of choice, ensuring you receive a well-rounded education is important to future career success."
She adds: "We've heard from employers that the ability to effectively communicate is the skill college grads are lacking most. So grads who can bring employers both in-demand technical skills and a core liberal arts foundation are the ones who are going to stand out most," Frank explains.
Here are the 25 majors with the highest starting salaries:
