Career Outcomes

On the following pages, we present our most recent information about career and graduate school transitions, as well as internships completed by our graduates when they were students at Biola. The information was collected during a December 2015 survey of our Spring 2015 baccalaureate graduates.

Key observations are as follows:

  • The survey respondents represent 32% of the Spring 2015 graduates (208 out of 638).
  • 91.3% of 2015 graduates who responded to an alumni survey were employed (includes full-time or part-time) or in graduate school six months after graduation, compared to 87% of 2014 graduates, and a national benchmark of 82.2%.*
  • 78.5% of 2015 graduates are employed in exclusively full-time equivalent work (30 or more hours per week) or enrolled in full-time graduate school, compared to the national benchmark of 76.1%, and the Far West benchmark of 73.0%.*
  • Health Sciences and Business majors report the highest median salaries ($54K and $48.5K, respectively) for full-time employment.
  • 78% worked as interns during their time at Biola. Business (91%), Health Sciences (83%), and Fine Arts & Communications (80%) majors had the highest participation rates across all internship types.
