In general, women and people of color earn less than their white and male counterparts even when they have similar qualifications, a report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce finds. What's It Worth? The Economic Value of College Majors (182 pages, PDF) examined the gender and racial/ethnic composition, median annual earnings, advanced degree attainment, likelihood of unemployment, and occupations of 171 college majors; the highest- and lowest-earning majors by race/ethnicity and gender; and earnings disparities within each major. Among other things, the study calculated the median earnings of whites with electrical engineering degrees at $90,000, compared with $80,000 for Asian Americans, $68,000 for African Americans, and $60,000 for Latinos/Hispanics. Funded by the Lumina Foundation for Education and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the report also found that the biggest gender gap in earnings is in the engineering and physical sciences fields.
