6. Exercise Science
Although a closer focus on fitness in general has become a societal norm in recent years, certain majors within fitness just aren’t paying off anymore. The focus has shifted more to wellness, so majors like Occupational Therapy, Athletic Training, and Nutrition are seeing higher paying salaries. One astounding fact about specifically the Exercise Science field is that there are only 1,521 annual online job postings, according to Kiplinger. Unless you’re feeling lucky, your chances of landing one of these jobs are almost nonexistent.
