About the Book

This is an easy to use, comprehensive reference tool for students, parents, teachers, counselors, and librarians to more than 400 majors offered in U.S. colleges and universities. Each entry gives a description of the major, levels offered (associate, bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral), examples of typical courses, related and complementary majors, needed abilities and aptitude to pursue the major, and career possibilities.
The book is intended to serve as a starting point in the process of choosing a college major. It introduces readers to the possibilities and can spark an interest in several majors that can then be explored in depth. The appendices list fields of study by discipline, alternate names for majors and cross-references of occupations to majors.
