Salary and Debt by Major at Liberty University

We calculated a salary score for each of Liberty 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 Liberty 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.

Terrible school. They do not care about the students, they only care about your money. I was threatened by my housing advisor (not an RA, an adult with a degree who was hired by the school).
