Salary and Debt by Major at University of Utah

We calculated a salary score for each of University of Utah'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 Utah 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 got an honors degree in international studies and political science. My experience at the U was worth it because of Center for Ethnic Students Affairs, Hinckley Institute of Politics and study abroad experiences. However, due to my interest in food politics, I would definitely choose Westminster College where I am getting my masters at.

If I had anything to complain about it would be parking and safety.
The parking at the school has been terrible for years. I do know they recently built a parking garage but there is minimal parking and the cost for a pass is astronomical. I do appreciate the free use of public transportation but some times it's not an option.

Safety has come into question recently because of the death of a student. However, this has been a concern for me for years because many women were sexually assaulted in the stadium parking in broad daylight. The UofU needs to take bigger steps in making their students safer.
