2021 Highest Paid Psychology Graduates in Indiana
Finding the Best Psychology School for You
Psychology is one of the most popular subjects to study in Indiana. With 2,500 bachelor's degrees handed out in 2018-2019, it ranked 8th out of all the majors we track. This means that colleges and universities in the state were responsible for awarding 2.0% of all the psychology bachelor's degrees in the country. Since picking the right college can be one of the most important decisions of your life, we've developed the Highest Paid Psychology Graduates ranking, along with many other major-related rankings, to help you make that decision.
This year's Highest Paid Psychology Graduates in Indiana ranking analyzed 24 colleges that offered a bachelor's degree in psychology.
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 Psychology Majors Make After Graduation?
The average psychology major who graduates from a school in Indiana earns about $28,500 per year during the early years of their career. That's not so great, since it is 28% less than the national average salary of a typical bachelor's degree holder. However, graduates from the schools in this list may make more.
This salary is in the same ballpark as the national average of $28,141 for those students who obtain a bachelor's degree in psychology.
