A new study finds that nine of the 10 most lucrative degrees in America are in computer science programs at elite colleges—and Harvey Mudd runs away with the lead
一项新的研究发现,在美国最赚钱的专业十有八九是名牌大学的计算机科学专业,大学则是哈维穆德学院遥遥领先

A Bachelor of Science from Harvey Mudd College, the small California science and engineering school, is the most valuable college degree in America.
哈维穆德学院是加州一家很小的理工学院,而这里的工科学士是全美最有价值大学学位。



Stanford's computer science program pays off more than any single major in the country.
斯坦福大学的计算机科学专业超过美国任何其他专业。



For the best dollar-for-dollar investment, nothing beats the University of Virginia.
弗吉尼亚大学是美国最物有所值的大学。



As those three (all true) facts illustrate, there are many ways to answer the question What's the most valuable college education in the country? Every year PayScale, the largest private tracker of U.S. salaries, tries to answer the question. This year they released their findings in an elegant site that you can play with here. They also shared their hard data with The Atlantic, which we used to do some further calculations.
正如以上三点(全部真实)事实阐述的,要回答“美国最有价值的大学是哪些?”这个问题有很多方式。美国最大的薪金调查公司PayScale打算回答这个问题。今年他们把调查结果发布在一个简洁的网站上,你可以在那里研究他们的成果。同时他们与大西洋月刊共享数据,于是我们以此可做更进一步的计算。



Before the candy, some methodological veggies. The challenge of putting together any study like this is that it's devilishly difficult to measure the cost and benefit of college. Start with cost, which is the time and money it takes to finish school. Colleges advertise their sticker price, but about half the students at many elite colleges get grants. Without financial aid, four years at Stanford University costs $236,000, making it one of the 10 most expensive colleges in America. But the "weighted net cost," factoring in grant aid and time to graduation, of going to Stanford is more like $74,000. For my purposes, I'm interested in net cost, not sticker price.
不过在享用结论的糖果之前,需要一些方法论的蔬菜。正如所有这类研究的挑战是,衡量大学的成本和收益非常困难。首先从成本开始,成本指的是完成学业所需的时间和金钱。学院宣传的学费通常较高,但许多名牌大学约有一半的学生可以得到奖学金。没有财政援助的话,斯坦福大学的4年学费是23.6万美元,这使其成为全美前十的最昂贵的大学之一。但根据“加权净成本”把奖学金资助和毕业时间毕业纳入计算的话,斯坦福只需要约7.4万美元。对于我统计的目的而言,我只对净成本感兴趣,而非高学费。
