Salary and Debt by Major at Tufts University

We calculated a salary score for each of Tufts 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 Tufts 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.

I really enjoyed my time at Tufts University, and especially my experience with the Child Development program. Seeing as my dad is a professor there and I grew up right around campus, I was already fairly familiar with the school going into college. But attending Tufts as a student was a great experience. Tufts was the right balance between a large school and a small school and between a city school and a rural school. Tufts encouraged its students to pursue passions and activities outside of the classroom,... Read More

The Child Development department was wonderful: it allowed for hands-on learning and encouraged students to consider the breadth of the field of Child Development. From classes on race and inequality to classes on children's literature, there was something for everyone, and Child Development majors were given the opportunity to try new things and broaden their expertise. The professors were all brilliant and cared about the well-being of students inside and outside the classroom. I graduated from Tufts feeling equipped to pursue a career post-grad and with a better sense of what my next steps should be.
