Professionally, the mental health office industry, clinical care, and the health care industry are popular business areas among Liberty alumni. Religious service is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Former Liberty students do not typically enter public K-12 education; in fact, less than two percent of graduates find work in this area, making it the least likely field for this group to enter. Liberty students do not advance into high-paying positions after graduation despite their impressive SAT results. Former Liberty graduates bring in about $44K on average.


The most generous salaries among Liberty alumni are reportedly earned by Senior Network Engineers, whose median earnings come to approximately $101K, followed by Senior Human Resources Managers ($78K) and Human Resources Managers (around $54K). Salaries are anything but generous for Senior Pastors, whose earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at $34K.


Richmond, Va. is a hub for Liberty graduates — a large number call this city home. It is no surprise that Austin, Texas, which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is $93K), is another of the most popular spots for former Liberty students. Home to the lowest median salary for Liberty alumni is Miami, Fla., a popular place for former students despite its $34K average paycheck. Other cities of interest include Baltimore, Md. and Lynchburg, Va.

Degree Major

Among the highest-paid Liberty alumni are those with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (CS) — they earn close to approximately $90K on average per year. Those holding a Bachelor's Degree, Psychology are less fortunate in terms of earnings, bringing in around $29K on average per year.


Knowledge of Microsoft Office seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 25 percent more than their former classmates' salaries ($55K). Many former Liberty students are familiar with Counseling, and close to one-tenth of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office, and Customer Service are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

Though vacation and sick days are paid for some, these benefits are reported by the minority of graduates (two-fifths of alumni and one in four survey participants, respectively). A strong majority of respondents have medical plans, and more than half of alumni have dental insurance. A fair number of alums participate in a 401(k) program. Alumni of Liberty University also take in life insurance, a casual working environment, flexible hours, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
