Salary and Debt by Major at Baylor University

We calculated a salary score for each of Baylor University's programs by comparing program-specific median alumni earnings to median alumni earnings for the same program across all schools that provide this data. This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at Baylor University to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program. Data is sourced from the December 2020 release of the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid. Debt and salary numbers are shown rounded to the nearest $10.

My younger bro and I attend here, I graduate this Spring. What a disappointment. The majority of profs are poor.

Job placement was all up to me, no help from faculty or placement center, including my internship. It was a 4 year disappointment.
