SUMMARY

Studying Zoology is not only a valuable choice, but frequently an essential first step for undergraduates choosing to pursue a career as a zoology researcher, an environmental zoologist, or an animal caregiver. In fact, zoology is a very rare major ranking as the 132nd most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 2,425 zoology graduates. In-state tuition for zoology at private universities is, on average, 3.2 times more pricey than their public rivals.

With just 94 colleges offering zoology you might have a more finite list of the institutions that will have an option for you. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other zoology majors, look at universities in Ohio which have the most undergraduates admitted to zoology annually. More generally, the top region to major in zoology is in the Great Lakes region with Michigan State University, Ohio State University-Main Campus, and Ohio University-Main Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to major in zoology is the Big Ten Conference with Michigan State University, Ohio State University-Main Campus, and University of Wisconsin-Madison representing the conference. That being said, our belief is that the best school for zoology is Cornell University. You might also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The objectively best school does not have to be the 'best' school for you. There can be tons more facets to weigh when deciding on college. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely change your choice of which college to attend. Here at Authority, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which zoology school has the top campus, the answer is Michigan State University. If, for example, you are very interested in which school is home to the top campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more so we can compare every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life here and our selection for the university with the best student life for zoology is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about Authority's top selections. Many of our picks just might shock you.

If cost is a significant deciding factor in your decision on where to go to school, you might be cautious about Franklin and Marshall College. Franklin and Marshall College is our most expensive college for zoology, at least for out of state students. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive schools that might put the price tag at Franklin and Marshall College into perspective. Additionally, you may want to know that zoology is the 220th most expensive major in the US, with an average associated cost of $29,100. On a broader scale, the most costly state for zoology nationally is Pennsylvania with tuition and fees at the main three institutions totalling $57,882 at Bucknell University, amounting to $38,070 at Delaware Valley University, and costs of $38,070 at Franklin and Marshall College. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the country for zoology is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Cornell University with a cost of $56,550, Bucknell University with a cost of $57,882, and Franklin and Marshall College with a cost of $58,615.

Our cheapest region for zoology 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. In better news, the most affordable college for zoology is SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Authority's full list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay about $11,500 for a degree in zoology. The price grows substantially to an average of $28,900 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. On that note, our pick for the college representing the best value for zoology: Cornell University. On this page you will see our comprehensive list of the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this list is based on the assumption that you are 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 zoology students differ a lot, but two years after leaving college students will typically earn in the neighborhood of $39,000. There can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top positions can enjoy pay up to $68,800. Straight out of school, the lowest earning positions within the zoology field make $21,900, which isn't that bad. The top earning grads for zoology studied at Cornell University and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of zoology is pretty bad, arriving within only the 19th percentile of all majors. The college with the most composite diversity for zoology is Cornell University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Zoology stands only in the 88th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 18th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share at 76% of those majoring in zoology. Additionally, 67% of scholars seeking a zoology degree are women.

The median ranking for zoology professors is 4.3 stars, a ranking which is 7% higher than the average score for every major; which is a fairly good score. If you are curious about the most popular zoology instructor nationally, consider looking up Sidi Berri from CUNY New York City College of Technology. This may be shocking, but the highest rated zoology instructors by student come from CUNY New York City College of Technology. If we including data beyond basic rankings it becomes clear that the college with comprehensively the best professors for zoology is Cornell University. One can find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the top examples of professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for zoology is Cornell University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we hope you believe that approaching the higher education world from context primarily built on superlatives might cause problems. We hope you explore our other pages on individual schools and peruse some of our insightful background 'blog posts' on useful things to consider as your university search develops.
