By Chris Kyle

Looking for a solid financial future?

While there are no guarantees in today's world, getting a degree that promises job security and good pay - in good times and bad - is what many people are seeking to do.

But how do you know which degree to pick? To determine our list of degrees you can bank on, we took a look at job security data from various sources.

We also looked at PayScale's 2010-2011 College Salary Report, which analyzed over 100 college majors to see what average salaries come with each bachelor's degree.

The results are clear: some degrees greatly outperform others.
