More than 70% of university freshmen identify making more money as a very important reason to attend college, and over their lifetimes college graduates will earn about $1 million more than high school graduates on average. But not all majors generate the same monetary benefits.
Join Dr. Adam Millsap and Dr. Doug Norton for a discussion about the monetary benefits of different college majors. The event is sponsored by the L. Charles Hilton Center for the Study of Economic Prosperity and Individual Opportunity and the FSU Economics Club.
Dr. Millsap is the Assistant Director of the Hilton Center and a senior affiliated scholar at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. His research focuses on cities, urban development, population trends, labor markets, and federal and local urban public policy. He earned his Ph.D. in economics from Clemson University.
Dr. Norton is a postdoctoral scholar with the Hilton Center. His research focuses on the public sector, nonprofit organizations, and the intersection of church and state. He earned his Ph.D. in economics from Florida State University in 2016 and has returned to the university after acting as senior economist at an education technology startup called MobLab.
