SUMMARY

Going to school for Microbiological Sciences and Immunology is a valuable choice and often a required first step for undergrads aspiring to begin a career as a microbiologist, a public health microbiologist, or a research and development scientist. Interestingly, nationally, microbiological sciences and immunology is a fairly common choice being the 109th most popular major. In the last year, there were 3,247 microbiological sciences and immunology graduates. In-state tuition for microbiological sciences and immunology at private universities is, on average, 1.6 times more pricey than their public peers.

With just 112 institutions offering microbiological sciences and immunology there could be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other microbiological sciences and immunology students, consider colleges in California which have the most students admitted to microbiological sciences and immunology annually. More generally, the best region to major in microbiological sciences and immunology is in the Far West region with University of California-Davis, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to major in microbiological sciences and immunology is the Pacific-12 Conference with Arizona State University-Tempe, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus representing the conference. That said, our choice for the best college for microbiological sciences and immunology is University of California-Los Angeles. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the 'best' school for you. There are tons more factors to weigh when deciding on institution. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could modify your decision on which school to attend. At authority.org, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which microbiological sciences and immunology university has the best campus, the answer is Rutgers University-New Brunswick. If you are very interested in which university is home to the best campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more so we can compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life here and our selection for the university with the best student life for microbiological sciences and immunology is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Some of our decisions will probably surprise you.

If price is a major influence in your decisions, you might consider avoiding University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. University of Michigan-Ann Arbor appears to be the most expensive school for microbiological sciences and immunology, at least regarding out of state attendance. We do have an entire list of the most expensive schools that might put the cost at University of Michigan-Ann Arbor into perspective. For more context, you may want to know that microbiological sciences and immunology is the 193rd most expensive degree in the US, with an average cost of $30,600. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for microbiological sciences and immunology nationally is New York with costs at the primary school, Wagner College, of $47,300. Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the country for microbiological sciences and immunology is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Wagner College with a cost of $47,300, Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus with a cost of $34,480, and University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus with a cost of $32,656.

Our cheapest region for microbiological sciences and immunology is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, Weber State University with a cost of $14,973, and University of Wyoming with a cost of $13,392. On the bright side, the most affordable school for microbiological sciences and immunology is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state students can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,800 for a degree in microbiological sciences and immunology. The price balloons a fair amount to a median of $28,400 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our choice for the school with the best value for microbiological sciences and immunology: University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Here you will see our comprehensive list of the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. Do know, this list is predicated on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for microbiological sciences and immunology majors range widely, but two-years after completing the major graduates will typically earn in the neighborhood of $50,200. There is a lot of variation in earnings; top positions can make up to $86,400. Even right out of school, the lowest end opportunities within the microbiological sciences and immunology field make $29,000, which is an alright wage. The top earning graduates from microbiological sciences and immunology have come from California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of microbiological sciences and immunology is on the higher end, being within the 71st percentile of all programs. The university with the highest composite diversity for microbiological sciences and immunology is University of Miami and here you can find our general list of the schools which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Microbiological Sciences and Immunology is only within the 68th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 68th percentile. White students make up the largest share at 55% of those studying microbiological sciences and immunology. Additionally, 60% of undergraduates pursuing a microbiological sciences and immunology degree are women.

The median ranking of microbiological sciences and immunology's professors is 3.8 stars, a score that is 5% worse than the median across all majors; this is a subpar ranking. If you want the most popular microbiological sciences and immunology instructor nationally, look no further than Cayle Lisenbee at Arizona State University-Tempe. It may be surprising, but the highest ranked microbiological sciences and immunology instructors by student are found at Arizona State University-Tempe. If we including data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing the overall best professors for microbiological sciences and immunology is University of California-Santa Barbara. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the best professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for microbiological sciences and immunology is University of California-Los Angeles. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you believe that looking at the education process with a perspective only informed by superlatives might create problems. We at Authority hope you explore our more focused pages on different schools and peruse some of our background pages on beneficial details to consider as your college search develops.
