Salary and Debt by Major at Lamar University

We calculated a salary score for each of Lamar 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.

A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program.
