I’ve got a daughter who shows great math and art talent, doesn’t love to code (although she knows how), and is not super interested in the biological sciences.
She’s considering a B.Arch, for architecture and has a good school available for that.
What other well paying career options that have a bachelors as the final degree needed to work, and are out there in that field that aren’t that specific degree? Would love thoughts from those out there who actually do it.March 19, 2023 at 4:53 pm #80315Zac

User Experience Designer, visual design is a subset of that. Typically in tech companies, makes well into mid 6-figures.March 19, 2023 at 4:53 pm #80317Ellie
She could study computational mathematics/minor in business and then go into multiple careers in tech such as product management, marketing, solution architecture (requires minimal coding) or the best paying one of all, tech sales.

I was similar and did physics and art. Looking back I wish I had done something medical instead like nursing, or something with chem/bio research. A physics degree isn’t that great in my experience.March 19, 2023 at 4:54 pm #80319Tanh

She sounds a lot like me. In high school I considered going to college for biology or architecture. But when I started college, I moved towards business and ended up graduating in 4 years with a degree in accounting and finance.
I have only a bachelor’s degree but amassed enough credits (150) to take the CPA exam immediately after college. I did this with credits fro a few high school AP courses, a summer study abroad and 18 credits one semester.
I passed the CPA exam the summer after college and started working for a Big 4 accounting firm in September. I stayed there about 6 years. It was hard work but I learned so much on the job. Now I have moved on to work in industry. 15 years after graduating college I earn 3.5 my starting salary. The work is interesting and keeps me engaged. I certainly work hard (about 50 hours per week normally, sometimes more at critical times) so she would need to be prepared for that if she wants to progress up the ladder.
I don’t get to do anything for my creative side as part of work (you know… frowned upon in accounting roles) but I do love crafting as a hobby to exercise that side of my brain.March 19, 2023 at 4:54 pm #80321Jason
You can do a lot with a BARCH. It’d a “problem solving” degree ; ) which is very useful in the world. I’m in my 23rd year as an architect.March 19, 2023 at 4:55 pm #80322Seden
I would not say architecture is a well paying career but it pays decent. I am a mechanical engineer in building design (hvac), I work with architects. They work a lot more than I do to make less than I do. I’d say you can’t go wrong with mechanical or electrical engineering but that wouldn’t have the art component.
