Salary and Debt by Major at University of Arizona

We calculated a salary score for each of University of Arizona'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 University of Arizona 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.

My degree was in health education and special education with the purpose becoming a headmaster of chancellor. It was a great university and the program of education was excellent. I liked the teachers and the student and the community. I did not live on campus but there was always something fun and exciting to do. The library was a great place to study.
