This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at Santa Clara 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.

Santa Clara continues to amaze me. Its values, its rigor, its faculty, the Jesuit influence, the high tech Silicon Valley, the weather, the opportunity to explore and the care of the whole person (Cura Personalis) makes this a place you don't want to leave after four (fast) years.

Alejandra Pacheco 6/29/2017

Santa Clara University provides a quality education that prepares us for life after college. Students are challenged to do research, work, learn, be involved and help the nearby community. Also, going to school in the Silicon Valley opens many doors for possible internship opportunities, something that cannot be found in many places.
