Fairfield University Named Among Top 15 Best Schools for Communication Majors in Annual PayScale Survey

The survey ranked Fairfield at No. 13 out of 458 schools nationally for producing Communication or Journalism students with the highest salary potential following graduation.

Ranked at No. 13 nationally out of 458 colleges and universities, Fairfield falls in the top three percent of communication or journalism schools to produce graduates with the highest earning potential. 

Based on data from PayScale’s ongoing, online compensation survey that recorded 3.5 million college graduates for the 2019–2020 rankings, Fairfield earned its top 15 national placement thanks to high median early-career pay ($58,900) for alumni with 0-5 years of work experience, and high median mid-career pay ($117,700) for alumni with more than 10 years of work experience. Fairfield is joined in the top 15 by University of California-Berkeley (No 1.), New York University (No. 11), and Boston College (No. 15).

PayScale’s College Salary Report 2019–2020 includes 1,736 of the 2,167 eligible bachelor’s degree granting schools in the U.S., and includes 98 percent of schools with higher than 5,000 undergraduate enrollment, 95 percent of schools with higher than 1,000 enrollment, and also includes more than 96 percent of all undergraduates at public or not-for-profit institutions, based on enrollment data from the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).
