Yale University's Top Rankings

Salary and Debt by Major at Yale University

We calculated a salary score for each of Yale 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 Yale University to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is a weighted average of all of its program scores. Data is sourced from the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and was last updated in December 2020. It reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid.

Yale has the best undergraduate experience of any university in the world. Nowhere else blends the incredible faculty and resources of a major research university with the small-college community feel of the residential college system.

It was an intensely challenging experience, but made me more mature and capable in the real world. My degree only prepared me moderately for the career field I eventually entered, but was overall great mental exercise, and made me a better writer and critical thinker overall.
