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.
