Salary and Debt by Major at Whittier College

We calculated a salary score for each of Whittier College'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 Whittier College 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 had a great time at Whittier College, it allowed me to not only grow in the intellectual sense but as a whole person. They connected me to an internship, LA County Arts Commission Internship of The Arts that completely changed my life path. This internship introduced me to the world of arts producing.

Whittier College is an amazing, small liberal arts college just outside of Los Angeles, CA. Class sizes are small, so you're not just a number and you can get lots of one-on-one attention from instructors if you need it. Everyone here is super friendly. Very close knit community.
