SUMMARY

Studying Human Sciences is not only a valuable choice, but frequently an essential first step for students hoping to enter a career as a school foods nutritionist, a child welfare worker, or a human services coordinator. In fact, human sciences is somewhat popular being the 112th most popular degree. In the last year, there were 3,142 human sciences degrees conferred. In-state tuition for human sciences at private institutions is, on average, 3.8 times more spendy than their public peers.

With just 100 institutions having programs for this degree you might have limited options as to the institutions you can choose from. If you are looking to surround yourself with other human sciences undergrads, consider schools in California which have the most undergraduates admitted to human sciences annually. More generally, the top region to get a degree in human sciences is in the Far West region with California State University-Long Beach, California State University-Northridge, and California State University-Sacramento best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the top conference to major in human sciences is the Big West Conference with California State University-Long Beach representing the conference. On that topic, our choice for the best school for human sciences is The University of Texas at Austin. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The objectively best school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There are a bunch of angels to weigh when choosing college. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would impact your feelings of which college to attend. Here at Authority, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which human sciences university has the best college campus, the answer is Miami University-Oxford. If you are primarily interested in which college is home to the best campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, student reviews, professor reviews, and more in order to compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life and from that list, our pick of the university with the best student life for human sciences is The University of Texas at Austin. Are you curious why? Continue reading to discover more about Authority's top selections. Some of our decisions just might surprise you.

If cost is a primary deciding factor in your choice of where you attend school, you might consider avoiding Meredith College. Meredith College is the most expensive school for human sciences, at least regarding out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive colleges that could put the expense at Meredith College into perspective. For more context, you might want to know that human sciences is the 370th most expensive major in America, with an average associated cost of $17,600. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for human sciences nationally is Ohio demonstrated by a tuition of $31,392 at the main college in the state Miami University-Oxford. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the U.S. for human sciences is the Great Lakes region which is best demonstrated with Bradley University with a cost of $34,200, Olivet Nazarene University with a cost of $36,080, and Miami University-Oxford with a cost of $31,392.

Our cheapest region for human sciences is the Plains region which is represented by Minnesota State University-Mankato with a cost of $15,686, Southeast Missouri State University with a cost of $12,636, and Chadron State College with a cost of $5,110. In better news, the most affordable school for human sciences is Eastern Illinois University. Authority.org's comprehensive list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state students can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $9,000 for a degree in human sciences. The price increases by a lot to an average of $20,000 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the school with the best value for human sciences: The University of Texas at Austin. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list on the schools we believe to be the best value overall. That being said, this idea is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for human sciences students vary a lot, but within two years finishing the degree students will often earn around $45,900. While there is a lot of variation in earnings potential; top positions can rake in up to $80,900. Right out of university, the minimum earning jobs within the human sciences space earn $25,900, which could be worse. The top earning graduates for human sciences come from The University of Texas at Austin and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of human sciences stands solid, ranking within the 73rd percentile of all programs. The school with the highest composite diversity for human sciences is CUNY Queens College and here you can find our general list for the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Human Sciences major stands only within the 14th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 95th percentile. White collegians make up the largest share, 43%, of students majoring in human sciences. Additionally, 87% of scholars pursuing a human sciences major are women.

The median rating of human sciences professors is 4 stars, a score that is exactly the average across all majors; which is a fine. If you want the most popular human sciences instructor in the country, look no further than Sarah Coyne at Brigham Young University-Provo. It may be a shock, but the top rated human sciences instructors according to students are at California State University-Northridge. As we incorporate data other than just rankings it becomes clear that the university with the overall best instructors for human sciences is The University of Texas at Austin. You can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with some of the best examples of professors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for human sciences is The University of Texas at Austin. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a detailed page for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, here at Authority we hope you believe that considering college through a lens mainly built on superlatives can create problems. We at Authority encourage you to read our more nuanced pages on different schools and explore a few of our informative background articles on essential details to consider as your school search continues.
