*Outcomes are based on the 65% of 2015-2016 HCLAS undergraduate degree recipients who responded to a survey or for whom data was gathered from LinkedIn within one year of graduation, not the total number of graduates, and may not be representative of the total graduating population. The career outcomes rate includes those employed (full-time or part-time) and not employed but attending graduate school (full-time or part-time) next semester.
All data must meet a test of data integrity. The average salary reported is determined by the level at which data may be deemed reliable (University-wide, school, division or department).
