STEMRMCA White Paper 2:
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are in Demand    
College degrees are very expensive and do not always lead to employment. However, some degrees are more likely to lead to success (and repaying student loans) than others. Pharmacology, nursing, transportation sciences, treatment therapies, chemical and electrical engineering, medical technologies, construction services, management information systems and medical assisting technologies are best.
