The "Value" of a Degree
So the moral is that in terms of straight finance an arts degree is really bad investment (the £22K lifetime income boost won't even pay off your student loan) but a maths or computing degree is well worth it boosting your income by £220K over a lifetime (a man with a degree in maths and computer science writes).
For the sake of our nation's communal intellect we can only hope that people don't make the decision on the degree they will take based on financial grounds or the arts are screwed.
