Weber State is divided into seven different schools and colleges, like the Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities and the John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics. Last year, Weber did a survey of the class of 2013, measuring, among other things, employment statistics for graduates of these programs.
Here are the programs that came out on top in graduates with a four-year degree.
- College of Applied Science & Technology
Home to Weber’s engineering, computer science and automotive technology programs, 66 percent of four-year graduates from WSU’s College of Applied Science & Technology had a full-time job in their major after graduation.
This college also boasts the highest annual salary for graduates employed full-time: $53,090
Nearly two-thirds of graduates from this school sought employment after graduation, rather than continue their education.
- Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions
Right behind science and tech, WSU’s College of Health Professions saw 56 percent of its four-year graduates in full-time employment in their fields of expertise, with an average annual salary of $46,387.
This college includes programs like nursing, health information management, health sciences and dental hygiene.
- John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics
This school is home to WSU’s economics program, the business administration program and the school of accounting and taxation. Recently, WSU also added an entrepreneurship minor to the school.
Fifty-three percent of graduates from this school were employed at the time of the survey in their chosen field, though this school had the lowest number of respondents report that they were actually seeking full-time work after graduation, little more than a third.
- College of Science
Covering diverse fields of study including botany, microbiology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, zoology and the geosciences, WSU’s College of Science also reported favorable statistics for employment.
Though slightly less than half of graduates sought full-time employment, 43 percent of those landed a job in their chosen field.
- Moyes College of Education
Covering child and family studies and teacher education, among others, the Moyes College of Education came in right behind the College of Science for four-year employment statistics.
Forty percent of graduates from this school had full-time jobs in their field. Almost two-thirds of graduates actively sought work.
