SUMMARY

Choosing to study Air Transportation is not only a valuable choice, but usually a needed first step for pupils planning to enter a career as an airplane pilot, an air traffic controller, or a pilot instructor. In fact, air transportation is fairly popular being the 89th most popular major. Last academic year, there were 4,541 air transportation diplomas received. In-state tuition for air transportation at private institutions is, on average, 3.3 times more spendy than their public counterparts.

With only 103 schools offering this degree you could have a smaller selection of institutions that will have an option for you. If you are looking to surround yourself with other air transportation undergraduates, consider universities in Florida which have the most undergraduates admitted to air transportation annually. less precisely, the top region to get a degree in air transportation is in the Southeast region with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach, Liberty University, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to major in air transportation is the The Sun Conference with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach representing the conference. Based on our extensive list on the best colleges, our choice for the best college for air transportation is Purdue University-Main Campus.

The objectively best school does not mean it is the 'best' school for you. There might be lots of perspectives to think about when choosing ​university. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely modify your feelings on which university to attend. At authority.org, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which air transportation university has the top campus, the answer is Ohio State University-Main Campus. If you are very interested in which college has the finest campus, then we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life here and, from that list, our pick of the university with the best student life for air transportation is Auburn University. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to find out more about Authority's top choices. Many of our decisions will probably surprise you.

If cost is a major influence in your choice of where you attend university, you might consider avoiding Saint Louis University. Saint Louis University appears to be the most expensive college for air transportation, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive schools that might put the cost of Saint Louis University into perspective. For more context, you may be interested to know that air transportation is the 286th most expensive program in America, with an average bill of $25,300. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for air transportation nationally is Pennsylvania with costs at the primary school, Marywood University, of $34,154. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the U.S. for air transportation is the Rocky Mountains region which is best demonstrated with Rocky Mountain College with a cost of $28,962, Utah State University with a cost of $21,087, and Westminster College with a cost of $34,464.

Our cheapest region for air transportation is the New England region which is represented by Bridgewater State University with a cost of $7,050 and Vermont Technical College with a cost of $27,336. In better news, the most affordable school for air transportation is Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state students can anticipate paying about $9,100 for a degree in air transportation. The price inflates intensely to a median of $19,400 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the school representing the best value for air transportation: Saint Louis University. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. Do know, this idea is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for air transportation students vary widely, but two years after finishing the degree students will typically make around $70,800. While there is a lot of variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can rake in up to $105,600. Right out of university, the lowest earning positions within the air transportation field earn $46,800, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads from air transportation come from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Prescott and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of air transportation is subpar, arriving within the 34th percentile of all programs. The university with the highest composite diversity for air transportation is Andrews University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Air Transportation is only within the 83rd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 43rd percentile. White undergraduates compose the largest share at 64% of those studying air transportation. Additionally, 86% of undergraduates seeking an air transportation major are men.

The median ranking of air transportation professors is 4.4 stars, a score which is 10% greater than the median score across all majors; which is a pretty good ranking. If you are interested in the most popular air transportation professor in the nation, look no further than Bill Kohlruss from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach. This may come as a shock, but the highest rated instructors for air transportation from student rankings are found at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach. If we incorporate data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing comprehensively the best instructors for air transportation is Purdue University-Main Campus. You will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for air transportation is Hampton University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a comprehensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. Although, here at Authority we hope you understand that looking at college from context only built on superlatives might create problems. We at Authority hope you explore our other pages on different topics and explore a few of Authority's background pages on beneficial things to consider as your university search continues.
