Harvard University's Top Rankings

Salary and Debt by Major at Harvard University

We calculated a salary score for each of Harvard 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 Harvard University to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is a weighted average of all of its program scores. Data is sourced from the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and was last updated in December 2020. It reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid.

Don't believe the hype. This school is not what its hyped up to be. Filled with snobs who think they know it all and students who buy into the b.s. The stuffy attitude the faculty has is antiquated. The students are entitled brats. The administrative staff is rude.

It's a really good school with too much to offer. Therefore people who get the most out of the school are those who have a set of skills they are seeking to get. I noticed that although work experience is not a requirement for admission, previous work experience is very helpful. There are also several versions of the degree so take your time to find one that is tailored to your need. Reach out! Reach out! Reach out!. The students are exceptionally helpful and the staff so ask questions via email .
