As the nation's second smallest state, Delaware might be dubbed "The Small Wonder," but that doesn't mean the state isn't home to any big opportunities involving advanced education. PayScale's College Salary Report has alumni salary data for a small number of graduate programs in Delaware.
Among the highest-earning graduate program for students in Payscale's list of the top graduate schools in Delaware is the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics at the University of Delaware.
Of course, the different schools have different emphasis that affect alumni salaries. Twenty-one percent of the master's degrees awarded at UD are in STEM subjects, whereas the University of Wilmington awards no master's degrees in STEM fields. Wilmington does award some master's programs in health sciences, but the majority of their programs are centered on education, human services and criminal justice. As is the case with many schools not focused on STEM degrees, the majority of Wilmington students are female.
