History salaries lag law professors ... by a mile
Salaries at private institutions increased 3.7 percent, while those at public institutions rose 3.1 percent. A year ago, faculty salaries increased 3.2 percent over all.
Unlike the salary survey done by the American Association of University Professors, the CUPA-HR survey does not report data by institution. It does, however, categorize the numbers by discipline and rank.
Law professors continue to lead the list. According to the survey, full professors in the field earn an average annual salary of $136,634. Even new assistant professors in law make nearly $80,000 a year. That is about the same average salary that full professors in history earn. New assistant professors in history average about $45,000.
