10 College Majors You Should Reconsider in 2019

3. Paralegal Studies


The demand for legal services will always be high, but this field is one of the most competitive. Law firms are increasingly seeking lower-paid paralegals and legal assistants in order to cut costs, and as a result, the average starting salary of a paralegal is just $35,000. This field is expected to grow at just under 10% in the next decade, but applicants are ready to fill, and overfill, these spots already. Steer clear of this degree unless you have a future position in your sights well prior to your graduation.
