Seattle University graduates with liberal arts, sciences and humanities degrees step into careers with starting wages that rival those of new graduates from elite Ivy League schools.

SU ranks among the nation's top 10 colleges with the highest paid liberal arts graduates, according to College Factual, which challenges the status quo to help prospective students make better decisions about college. "In addition to having high academic standards and outcomes for its graduates, the university is very diverse," College Factual says of SU. "The average starting salary of graduates with liberal arts degrees is $46,000 a year, with midcareer salaries of $79,000."
