Based on the starting salary data from over 1.2 million students who graduated with a master's degree, GradReports has compiled the most comprehensive rankings of master's programs based on graduate salaries. Profiling 25 of the most popular majors and covering 35,000 programs in the US, the BAC is proud to be ranked #4 for Best Architecture School, and #1 for Best Graduate School for Earning Potential in 2020!

According to the median annual salary of students one year after graduation, BAC students earn an average $61,200. We are honored to be an institution that offers affordable and accessible design education to students from diverse communities. With an annual tuition of $24,621, BAC students pay less and earn more after graduation compared to Yale University, who is ranked #2, and Columbia University in New York, who is ranked #3. These rankings are the first to be based on median early-career salary data of over 5 million graduates from the U.S. Department of Education's resource, College Scorecard.

"I am so honored that the BAC's Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture have been recognized to be the number one programs in the country! Our students are empowered by our mission and our practice-based approach to architectural education. Our graduates embody our social justice mission - as graduates and as makers of their communities," shared Karen Nelson, Dean of the School of Architecture.
