SUMMARY

Majoring in Education is not only a valuable choice, but ordinarily a requisite first step for scholars desiring to enter a career as an education consultant, a professor, or an education systems consultant. In fact, education is a surprisingly popular degree choice, coming in at the 6th most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 88,927 education degrees conferred. In-state tuition for education at private colleges is, on average, 3.6 times more costly than their public counterparts.

With a staggering 1389 schools offering education chances are that any institutions you are excited about will have an option for you. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other education undergrads, look at universities in California which have the most undergraduates admitted to education annually. Zooming out, the top region to major in education is in the Southeast region with University of Central Florida, Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, and Liberty University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study education is the Southeastern Conference with The University of Alabama, University of Kentucky, and Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College representing the conference. Based on our list on the best colleges, our belief is that the best school for education is Harvard University.

The best school does not mean it is the best school for every student. There might be tons of angels to weigh when selecting ​university. External stuff such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely affect your decision on where to go to university. At Authority, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which education school boasts the best campus, the winner is Harvard University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which college is home to the top campus, then we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more so we can compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life here and, from that list, our choice for the college with the best student life for education is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about our top choices. Many of our picks will probably shock you.

If expense is a primary factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might consider avoiding Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York is our most expensive school for education, at least for out of state enrollment. We have an entire list of the most expensive universities that might put the price tag at Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. You could also care to know that education is the 43rd most expensive degree in America, with an average associated cost of $50,400. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for education in the country is Rhode Island with costs at the main three schools Brown University, Providence College, and Salve Regina University of $57,112, $51,490, and $51,490 respectively. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the country for education is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Trinity College with a cost of $56,380, Boston College with a cost of $56,780, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for education is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Idaho with a cost of $4,208, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and Aspen University with a cost of $3,600. In better news, the most affordable school for education is Martin Luther College. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable schools can be found here.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $8,900 for a degree in education. That cost inflates intensely to a median of $19,700 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. On that note, our choice for the college with the best value for education: Duke University. On this page you will see our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. With that said, this section is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for education students range widely, but within two years finishing the degree graduates will regularly make around $45,900. While there can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top earners can experience pay up to $91,200. Right out of university, the lowest end positions within the education field earn $23,000, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from education have come from Duke University and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of education stands below average, ranking in the 33rd percentile of all programs. The school with the most composite diversity for education is Swarthmore College and here you can find our general list of the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Education is only in the 43rd percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 35th percentile. White students compose the largest share, 67%, of students studying education. Additionally, 79% of undergraduates pursuing an education major are women.

The median rating of education's professors is 4.3 stars, a rating which is 8% better than the average score for all majors; which is a fairly good score. If you are searching for the most popular education instructor nationally, look no further than Dyana Valentine from Santa Monica College. It may surprise you, but the top rated professors for education from student rankings come from Berklee College of Music. As we incorporate data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing the best instructors for education is Harvard University. One will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest examples of professors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for education is Harvard University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a detailed list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we hope you believe that considering university from examples only formed from superlatives could cause issues. We encourage you to read our other pages on individual universities and peruse a few of Authority's insightful background articles on useful details to think about as your school search continues.
