CS 4th Top-Paid Major Among Class of 2010

Good news for our computer science majors: according to a report by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), CS majors graduating this year will be offered $61K a year. There are only three other majors, all engineering, that will be paid more. Of course CS majors working in Arkansas should expect slightly (significantly?) lower salaries.
