SUMMARY

Choosing to study Humanities is a valuable choice and often an essential first step for students planning to begin a career as a content strategist, a human resource specialist, or a copywriter. Interestingly, nationally, humanities is a very rare major coming in at the 155th most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 1,845 humanities degrees conferred. In-state tuition for humanities at private schools is, on average, 3.8 times more pricey than their public peers.

There are 248 schools which offer humanities. 248 schools is on par with other programs offered in the United States. If you're hoping to immerse yourself with other humanities undergrads, consider looking at institutions in New Jersey which have the most undergraduates admitted to humanities annually. Zooming out, the best region to major in humanities is in the Far West region with Azusa Pacific University, Washington State University, and California State University-Monterey Bay best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study humanities is the Big East Conference with Seton Hall University, Villanova University, and Providence College representing the conference. Based on our list on the best colleges, our selection for the best university for humanities is Harvard University.

The overall 'best' school does not have to be the 'best' school for you. There can be a bunch of angels to think about when selecting school. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely impact your feelings on where to go to school. Here at Authority, we've evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which humanities university is home to the best college campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are very interested in which college has the top campus, then we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more to evaluate every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and our pick for the school with the best student life for humanities is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about our top selections. Many of our decisions will probably surprise you.

If cost is a major factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might be cautious about Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be our most expensive university for humanities, at least for out of state enrollment. We do have an entire list of the most expensive colleges that could put the expense at Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. You could also want to know that humanities is the 203rd most expensive degree in the nation, with an average bill of $29,700. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for humanities in the country is Connecticut with expenses at the primary school, Yale University, of $55,500. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for humanities is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Yale University with a cost of $55,500, and Harvard University with a cost of $47,730.

Our cheapest region for humanities is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by University of Colorado Boulder with a cost of $34,930, Brigham Young University-Idaho with a cost of $4,208, and Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790. In better news, the most affordable college for humanities is Brigham Young University-Provo. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $9,700 for a degree in humanities. The cost increases intensely to an average of $24,800 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the university with the best value for humanities: Harvard University. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list of the schools we see as being the best value overall. Bear in mind, this discussion is based on out-of-state tuition costs. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for humanities students can differ, but within two years completing the major graduates will regularly earn around $39,800. There can be much variation in salary; highest paid earners can experience pay up to $75,800. Even right out of school, the minimum earning jobs within the humanities field earn $21,100, which isn't that bad. The highest earning graduates for humanities studied at Harvard University and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of humanities is solid, being within the 73rd percentile of all programs. The school with the highest composite diversity for humanities is New York University and here you can find our general list for the colleges with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Humanities only ranks within the 71st percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, ranking in the 75th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share at 53% of students majoring in humanities. Additionally, 71% of students pursuing a humanities major are women.

The median score of humanities professors is 4 stars, a ranking which is surprisingly the median score for all majors; which is a fine. If you are searching for the most popular humanities instructor nationally, look no further than Hector Vazquez at Miami Dade College. This may be shocking, but the highest rated instructors for humanities by student are at Valencia College. If we incorporate data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the school with the overall best professors for humanities is Harvard University. You will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for humanities is Harvard University. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a general page for the hardest colleges to get into. But, we hope you believe that approaching the higher education world through a lens only built on superlatives might cause problems. We hope you read our more focused pages on different topics and read a few of our informative background pages on useful details to consider as you progress with your university search.
