Salary and Debt by Major at Johns Hopkins University

We calculated a salary score for each of Johns Hopkins 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 Johns Hopkins 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.

Hopkins is a world-class institution that did not disappoint. I absolutely loved my time at Hopkins. I received a very rigorous education with small classes, accessible professors, and engaged classmates. My classmates were extremely talented, engaged, smart, well-rounded individuals that became lifelong friends. Even with the academic rigor, I still had a lot of fun. I am very thankful for my time at Hopkins and am a proud alum!
