SUMMARY

Studying Respiratory Care Therapy is not only a valuable choice, but typically an obligatory first step for scholars wanting to begin a career as a recovery specialist, a pulmonologist, or a smoking cessation therapist. In fact, respiratory care therapy is an uncommon degree ranking as the 172nd most popular major. Last year alone, there were 1,563 respiratory care therapy degrees conferred. In-state tuition for respiratory care therapy at private schools is, on average, 3.4 times more expensive than their public peers.

With only 82 institutions having programs for respiratory care therapy you could have limited options as to the institutions that will have an option for you. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other respiratory care therapy undergrads, consider looking at institutions in Texas which have the most undergrads admitted to respiratory care therapy annually. Zooming out, the top region to study respiratory care therapy is in the Southeast region with Jacksonville State University, Georgia State University, and University of North Carolina at Charlotte best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the top conference to study respiratory care therapy is the Mountain West Conference with Boise State University representing the conference. Based on our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our selection for the best university for respiratory care therapy is Stony Brook University.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the 'best' school for every student. There are lots more facets to think about when deciding on college. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would alter your inclinations of where to go to university. At Authority, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which respiratory care therapy university has the best campus, the winner is Ohio State University-Main Campus. If you are mostly interested in which school is home to the top campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more so we can evaluate all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and from that list, our choice for the college with the best student life for respiratory care therapy is The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Curious why? Keep reading to find out more about our top choices. Some of our decisions will probably shock you.

If cost is a significant deciding factor in your decision on where to go to school, you might consider avoiding Bellarmine University. Bellarmine University appears to be our most expensive school for respiratory care therapy, at least regarding out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive schools that could put the expense of Bellarmine University into perspective. Additionally, you could care to know that respiratory care therapy is the 339th most expensive program in the nation, with an average cost of $20,100. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for respiratory care therapy on our list is Connecticut demonstrated with a cost of $39,220 at University of Hartford. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for respiratory care therapy is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for respiratory care therapy is the Southwest region which is represented by Midwestern State University with a cost of $7,516, Texas State University with a cost of $19,868, and The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio with a cost of $18,306. On the bright side, the most affordable university for respiratory care therapy is Skyline College. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay about $8,500 for a degree in respiratory care therapy. That price balloons dramatically to an average of $19,900 for the out-of-state public-school student. On that note, our pick for the college representing the best value for respiratory care therapy: Loma Linda University. Through this link you will see our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this section is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for respiratory care therapy students vary a lot, but two-years after leaving college students will regularly make in the neighborhood of $56,700. While there can be a lot of variation in earnings; highest paid earners can make up to $91,000. Even straight out of school, the minimum earning opportunities within the respiratory care therapy space earn $35,100, which isn't that bad. The highest earning graduates from respiratory care therapy have come from Loma Linda University and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of respiratory care therapy stands decent, being within the 64th percentile of all majors. The university with the most composite diversity for respiratory care therapy is Long Island University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Respiratory Care Therapy major only is within the 11th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 73rd percentile. White collegians compose the largest share at 55% of those studying respiratory care therapy. Additionally, 71% of undergrads pursuing a respiratory care therapy major are women.

We have insufficient professors data for respiratory care therapy to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. As we consider data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the university with the overall best professors for respiratory care therapy is The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. You can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top examples of instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for respiratory care therapy is Radford University-Carilion. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have a detailed page of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, here at Authority we hope you understand that approaching the higher education world from context mainly built on superlatives can cause issues. We at Authority encourage you to look at some of our other pages on different universities and peruse a few of our informative background pages on essential details to think about as your university search develops.
