Those with a degree from Furman make an average of approximately $59K.


There is a sizable difference between men's post-college salaries and women's: the median for the former is $63K, but the median for the latter is only $51K.


It is no surprise that Chicago, Ill., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is around $64K), is another of the most popular spots for former Furman students. Home to the lowest median salary for Furman alumni is Washington, DC, a popular place for former students despite its about $52K average paycheck.

Degree Major

A B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) will compensate Furman grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in $58K on average per year. A B.A. in Psychology is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of $49K.


Competency in Proposal Writing translates into above-average pay for former Paladins — they earn 13 percent more than their fellow graduates. Many former Furman students are familiar with Strategic Planning, and just under one in three grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized.

Benefits and Perks

Some take advantage of an attractive benefits package; nearly all respondents are paid for both vacation and sick time. A strong majority of alums report contributing to a 401(k). Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; a fair number of grads are rewarded with health insurance and a strong majority of respondents report dental coverage, too. Other benefits that Furman University alumni receive are free drinks, tuition reimbursement, stock purchase plan, and a company-subsidized cell phone.

Related Schools

Median pay for Morehouse College grads is about $55K, making their salaries most similar to those of Furman grads. Wofford College, Presbyterian College, and Erskine College and Seminary are also similar to Furman.
