What’s at the bottom of the barrel? Music.

The website HigherEdJobs.com recently posted the results of a survey of faculty (and administrator) salaries, organized by discipline and rank.

The lowest paid discipline was music (actually it was sort of tied for last place with Theology, go figure). Read it and weep here.
