What are Fields of Study? - are branches of knowledge that are taught and researched as part of higher education. Fields of Study have many majors associated with them. There is no consensus on how some majors should be classified, so multiple fields of study should be examined when looking for a specific major.
Search for Colleges that have specific majors
In the Specific Majors area, select one or more majors in the dropdown "filter" adjacent to a field of study name. Click on the "compare" box to show the results on the grid. The majors in more than one field of study can be selected.
Recommendation: Major searches are data intensive - we suggest limiting the number of majors selected to 10 or less.
