Many of the most famous colleges in the United States have their roots in religious affiliations. In the College Salary Report, PayScale has ranked all religious colleges in the United States by their earning potential.
Santa Clara University is a religious school with highly paid alumni when we poll graduates with a bachelor's degree and no higher education. This small California school with just over 5,000 undergraduate students beat out big names like Duke, Georgetown and Brigham Young University, even though only a small percent of their degrees are in science, technology, engineering and math.
Other religious colleges and universities with high earning potentials are Notre Dame, Boston College, Brigham Young University and Loyola Marymount.
