College pays off. But with some degrees, it pays off better.

According to the most recent U.S. Census survey, college graduates make on average $20,000 more a year than non-college grads, and the unemployment rate for non-college graduates is double that of those with college degrees.

On Monday, Money College ran a story on the 10 highest paying college majors, based on Payscale.com's annual report. Today, we're taking a look at the other side of the equation -- the lowest paying undergraduate college degrees.

You might notice the two most prevalent fields on this list include altruistic (social work, teaching, hospitality) and artistic careers, both of which function to nurture and color society. Remember, money can't buy everything.
