When it comes to college majors it pays to be good at math and science because that's where the money is at.

According to Bankrate, the five most valuable college majors are almost entirely some variation of engineering.

A total 173 majors were compared and those with the top earning potential were all in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.

So, if you have a student who's a senior this year and looking to go on to college, make sure they know what the reality of life will look like after graduation.

It's like my folks used to say, "Passion doesn't pay the bills."
