There’s a new study that puts some numbers behind the difference between a dance major and an engineering major at Wisconsin colleges and universities.
The study from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty highlights the differences between in-demand majors and technical programs and majors or programs that don’t earn as much. The study suggests colleges and universities talk with students about the return on investment for a degree before signing students up for six-figures worth of student loans. The study also looks at student loan default rates. UW-Madison has the second lowest rate in the state, while beauty schools in Wisconsin have the highest.
