African Americans: College Majors and Earnings

  1. African Americans: College Majors and Earnings Anthony P. Carnevale, Megan L. Fasules, Andrea Porter, Jennifer Landis-Santos February 9, 2016
  2. Overview •  Access to college for African Americans has increased, but African Americans are highly concentrated in lower-paying majors •  African Americans, who represent 12 percent of the U.S. population, are underrepresented in the number of degree holders in college majors associated with the fastest-growing, highest-paying occupations— STEM, health, and business
  3. Since 2009, African Americans have gained ground in social sciences, psychology and social work, and health
  4. Earnings vary greatly among college majors •  African Americans who earned a Bachelor’s degree in a STEM related major, such as architecture or engineering, can earn as much as 50 percent more than African Americans who earned a Bachelor’s degree in art or psychology and social work
  5. Architecture and engineering is the major group with the highest median earnings for African Americans with a Bachelor’s degree
  6. Majors and earnings African Americans account for 12 percent of all Bachelor’s degree holders who majored in psychology and social work, and only 5 percent of architecture and engineering majors
  7. African American representation is low in the fastest-growing fields African Americans who majored in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences and administration have the highest median earnings at $84,000
  8. National top ten median earnings for African Americans with Bachelor's degrees
  9. African Americans tend to be overrepresented in low-earning majors Majors associated with serving the community, including human services and community organization (20%) and social work (19%), are highly represented
  10. Conclusion •  Careful career planning is especially crucial for all African American students to help them avoid debt and underemployment later in life •  African Americans who choose majors in well-paying, growing fields are likely to be better positioned to get higher paying jobs, acquire less student debt and nurture future generations
