People should seriously consider taking a STEM Degree, or a Degree in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  Not only do these fields have higher growth, but the salaries are more lucrative than those with non-STEM degrees.

One particular sub-field of STEM is Computer Science, a Degree which helps students become Software Engineers.

The average starting salary of those with Bachelor Degrees in 2014 is around $61,000.

The early career salary of those with Bachelor Degrees in Computer Science from Stanford and U.C. Berkeley is around $95,000.
