Salary and Debt by Major at Columbia College

We calculated a salary score for each of Columbia College'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 Columbia College 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.

The schedule was convenient and allowed you to power through courses in eight weeks. The topics were relevant. Some of the other reviews note the difficulty of the class work and tests.

Overall, it was a challenging and productive degree experience.
