Rhode Island is the smallest state in the country, but also one of the most dense in terms of population. It was one of the original 13 colonies, and it's nicknamed "The Ocean State." This year the PayScale College Salary Report has data on a small number of grad-school programs in Rhode Island, which include Brown University, Bryant University, and the University of Rhode Island. Our hope is that this report will provide helpful insights not only into the best academic programs, but once that make sense for your financial future.
Among the top graduate schools in Rhode Island, Brown University (in Providence) lands near the top of list for the highest earning potential for those alumni who received a master's degree (non-MBA). It's a mid-sized school, with a student enrollment of about 2,500 and a perfectly even split in the gender. Most Brown graduates also say that they've found great job meaning in their post-grad careers. Notable alumni include John D. Rockefeller Jr., John F. Kennedy Jr., and Ted Turner.
