SUMMARY

A degree in Insurance is a valuable choice and typically a requisite first step for undergrads endeavoring to pursue a career as an insurance sales representatives, a life insurance agent, or an insurance underwriter. Interestingly, insurance is a very rare major ranking as the 182nd most popular area of study. Last year alone, there were 1,396 insurance degrees conferred. In-state tuition for insurance at private schools is, on average, 3.7 times more costly than their public counterparts.

With just 53 institutions offering insurance you might have a smaller selection of institutions you can choose from. If you're looking to surround yourself with other insurance majors, consider looking at universities in Pennsylvania which have more undergrads admitted to insurance than any other state. More generally, the best region to get a degree in insurance is in the Southeast region with Florida State University, University of Georgia, and University of South Carolina-Columbia best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study insurance is the Southeastern Conference with University of Georgia, University of Mississippi, and University of South Carolina-Columbia representing the conference. That being said, our belief is that the best college for insurance is University of Wisconsin-Madison. You might also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The overall 'best' school does not mean it is the best school for you. There can be lots more facets to think about when deciding on institution. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely change one's choice of where to go to school. At authority.org, we've evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which insurance university boasts the best campus, the answer is St John's University-New York. If you are very interested in which university boasts the best campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life here and, from that list, our choice for the university with the best student life for insurance is University of Wisconsin-Madison. Curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Some of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If price is a significant factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about Saint Joseph's University. Saint Joseph's University appears to be the most expensive college for insurance, at least for out of state students. That being said, we have an entire list of the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Saint Joseph's University into perspective. You could also care to know that insurance is the 312th most expensive major in America, with an average associated cost of $22,700. On a broader scale, the most costly state for insurance nationally is Connecticut with tuition and fees at the primary school, University of Hartford, of $39,220. Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the U.S. for insurance is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for insurance is the Southeast region which is represented by University of Central Arkansas with a cost of $13,620, Florida State University with a cost of $19,084, and University of Louisiana at Monroe with a cost of $17,888. On the bright side, the most affordable college for insurance is Missouri State University-Springfield. Authority's full list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay around $10,000 for a degree in insurance. That price increases substantially to a median of $23,700 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the university with the best value for insurance: Saint Joseph's University. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list for the schools we see as being the best value in general. Bear in mind, this section is based on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for insurance majors differ a lot, but within two-years of completing the major graduates will regularly earn around $53,200. While there can be much variation in pay; highest paid earners can rake in up to $96,300. Straight out of school, the lowest end jobs within the insurance field earn $28,900, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates for insurance studied at Saint Joseph's University and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of insurance ranks quite poor, falling within only the 16th percentile of all majors. The college with the highest composite diversity for insurance is St John's University-New York and here you can find our general list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Insurance ranks only in the 86th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 14th percentile. White collegians compose the largest proportion at 78% of scholars studying insurance. Additionally, 64% of undergrads seeking an insurance degree are men.

The median rating for insurance professors is 4.2 stars, which is 5% higher than the median for all majors; this is a good score. If you are interested in the most popular insurance professor in the nation, consider looking up Michael Stinson from Santa Barbara City College. It may come as a surprise, but the top rated instructors of insurance according to students are at University of Colorado Boulder. If we consider data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the university possessing the best instructors for insurance is Saint Joseph's University. You will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with some of the top instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for insurance is Florida State University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a general page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you believe that considering higher education through a lens mainly derived from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental issues. We at Authority hope you read our other pages on individual topics and peruse a few of our background articles on beneficial details to look for as you continue your school search.
