Summary: Liberal arts majors are generally given a hard time when compared to their science and math counterparts, but they can be just as successful.

The numbers don’t lie. Liberal arts majors, on average, don’t make as much as other majors like science and math. However, there are liberal arts colleges across the country that produce students just as qualified for top positions and that also attend the top graduate schools. Comparing data like SAT scores, median starting salaries, and information from 1,000 Business Insiders on the preparedness of graduates for the real world, Levo produced a list of the top liberal arts colleges. Here are the top 15:
