2021 Highest Paid Physical Sciences Graduates in Montana
Finding the Best Physical Sciences School for You
Physical Sciences is the #14 most popular major in Montana with 136 bachelor's degrees awarded in 2018-2019. This means that 0.4% of the degrees earned in the country were from a school in the state. Since picking the right college can be one of the most important decisions of your life, we've developed the Highest Paid Physical Sciences Graduates ranking, along with many other major-related rankings, to help you make that decision.
In this ranking, we use early career salaries - salaries 10 years from when a student started college. This is the salary typically earned 4-6 years after graduation, but may be different depending on how long a person takes to complete their degree.
How Much Do Physical Sciences Majors Make After Graduation?
The average physical sciences major who graduates from a school in Montana earns about $30,300 per year during the early years of their career. That's not so great, since it is 24% less than the national average salary of a typical bachelor's degree holder. However, graduates from the schools in this list may make more.
The national average salary for graduates with a bachelor's degree in physical sciences is $35,669. That's about 15% more that the average salary of graduates from schools in Montana.
To further help you make the college decision, we've developed a unique tool called College Combat that allows you to compare schools based on the factors that matter the most to you. Go ahead and give it a try, or bookmark the link so you can check it out later.
