The Economist Magazine - "Is College Worth It?"

From The Economist magazine (April 5th) - Is College Worth It?
Arts and humanities courses... nourish the soul, but not all fatten the wallet.An arts degree from a rigorous school such as Columbia or the University of California, San Diego pays off handsomely. But an arts graduate from Murray State University in Kentucky can expect to make $147,000 less over 20 years than a high school graduate, after paying for his education. Of the 153 arts degrees in the study, 46 generated a return on investment worse than plonking the money in 20-year treasury bills. Of those, 18 offered returns worse than zero.
