Big Increases In the Starting Salaries of History Majors

Never thought I'd see history listed as one of majors that experienced big increases in average starting salaries -- but according to CNNMoney.com that is exactly what happened last year. The starting salary for new history majors rose by 4.2% the same as the percentage increase for business administration/management majors.

I can just picture the line outside of my door on the Monday after Thanksgiving as everyone wants to now sign up to be a history major. I just won't mention that fact that although history majors and business administration majors saw the same percentage increases in starting salaries that the average salary for history majors (33,071) is a little over $8,000 less than the average salary for those in business (41,155).
