If you’re trying to make a difference in the world — but also want to make good money — you may want to pursue a job in medicine or public safety.

In 2015, PayScale analyzed thousands of job titles to identify the best gigs for do-gooders. It found the professions in which people were most likely to say that their jobs “make the world a better place.”

We then looked at up-to-date median salary data for each job on PayScale and identified which ones typically pay more that $ 55,000 a year.
