What masters program in science is there where someone can expect to have a very good salary right after graduation?

The reason why i'm writing this is because my friend got into dental school and the only reason why he wanted to get into dentistry was for the money, not just because he loved science and since he couldn't make it in dentistry, he doesn't have ideas about masters, any information would be highly appreciated. Honestly, I can't stand being poor anymore. I totally am not kidding.

I would say an MPH or RN and trying to get into some management position, probably a director for outcomes research. Outcomes is a growing field along with reimbursement in the healthcare industry. Your friend will have to be business savvy though. Can't ever be rich unless you're good with money.

Well, i guess the RN isn't a masters but it is an immensely useful and versatile degree. There are a ton of non-traditional applications out there that can make you a lot more money than in a the normal clinical setting. But again, you have to be business savvy.

Do you mean a degree other than dentistry? Computer and mechanical engineering bs degree would do so. 55k start and then have the possibility of getting raised to around 80k. I thought about it even though it's a no brainer. GP makes 170k and specialist makes 270k. It's a VERY GOOD investment if you look at it this way. If you are smart you can make money and you don't need a degree. Look at the business people and entertainment people, but the potential risk is way higher. My suggestion is to find a long term job that offers good pay as a back up, and then own you other business.

I just want to clarify i'm not talking about dentistry, once again i'm talking about alternatives such as biophysics. If anyone has any information on this field or major. Because he really wants to know what that major makes.
