In fact, radio, television, and digital communication is somewhat popular being the 45th most popular major. Last year alone, there were 10,624 radio, television, and digital communication degrees conferred. In-state tuition for radio, television, and digital communication at private schools is, on average, 3.6 times more expensive than their public peers.

There are 323 schools which offer this degree. 323 universities is on par with other programs offered in the United States. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other radio, television, and digital communication majors, consider looking at schools in New York which have the most students admitted to radio, television, and digital communication annually. less precisely, the best region to study radio, television, and digital communication is in the Southeast region with Florida State University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and University of Mississippi best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to study radio, television, and digital communication is the Southeastern Conference with The University of Alabama, University of Florida, and University of Mississippi representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best college for radio, television, and digital communication is Northwestern University. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The overall best school is not necessarily the best school for you. There can be lots of facets to think about when deciding on school. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would modify your decision on which school to attend. Here at Authority, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which radio, television, and digital communication college is home to the top campus, the answer is New York University. If you are mostly interested in which school is home to the best campus, then we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more to compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the schools with the best student life and, from that list, our choice for the school with the best student life for radio, television, and digital communication is University of Florida. Are you curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about Authority's top selections. Many of our picks will probably surprise you.

If expense is a major factor in your choice of where you attend university, you might be cautious about Northwestern University. Northwestern University is our most expensive school for radio, television, and digital communication, at least regarding out of state enrollment. We do have an entire page for the most expensive colleges that could put the cost at Northwestern University into perspective. For more context, you may want to know that radio, television, and digital communication is the 142nd most expensive program in the US, with an average expense of $34,400. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for radio, television, and digital communication on our list is Louisiana with expenses at the primary institution, Tulane University of Louisiana, of $52,760. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the country for radio, television, and digital communication is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Boston University with a cost of $54,720, Suffolk University with a cost of $39,814, and Champlain College with a cost of $41,728.

Our cheapest region for radio, television, and digital communication is the Plains region which is represented by Minnesota State University Moorhead with a cost of $15,264, University of Central Missouri with a cost of $14,256, and Park University with a cost of $7,999. In better news, the most affordable university for radio, television, and digital communication is Florida State University. Our full list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay around $9,800 for a degree in radio, television, and digital communication. That price increases substantially to a median of $22,200 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the college constituting the best value for radio, television, and digital communication: Northwestern University. Through this link you can see our comprehensive list of the universities we see as being the best value overall. Bear in mind, this idea is based on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is 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 radio, television, and digital communication majors can differ, but two-years after completing the major graduates will regularly make around $42,000. There can be a lot of variation in salary; highest paid earners can experience pay up to $88,900. Even right out of college, the minimum earning positions within the radio, television, and digital communication space make $20,100, which isn't that bad. The top earning grads for radio, television, and digital communication graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of radio, television, and digital communication ranks high, coming within the 76th percentile of all majors. The college with the most composite diversity for radio, television, and digital communication is New York University and here you can find our general list for the schools with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Radio, Television, and Digital Communication only ranks within the 49th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, in the 70th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share, 55%, of those studying radio, television, and digital communication. Additionally, 55% of students pursuing a radio, television, and digital communication degree are women.

The median ranking for radio, television, and digital communication professors is 4 stars, which is actually the median score for all majors; this is a fine. If you are curious about the most popular radio, television, and digital communication instructor in the country, look no further than Trent Howard from Utah Valley University. It might be shocking, but the highest rated instructors of radio, television, and digital communication by student come from Utah Valley University. As we including data other than simply rankings it becomes clear that the college with the overall best professors for radio, television, and digital communication is Northwestern University. You can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top professors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for radio, television, and digital communication is Northwestern University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have an extensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we hope you believe that looking at college with a lens only shaped by superlatives can create problems. We at Authority hope you explore our more focused pages on different colleges and explore some of our background articles on useful things to look for as you continue your university search.
