The Book of Majors 2010 is the most comprehensive guide to academic programs, with in-depth descriptions of 200 of the most popular college majors.

More than 900 majors at 3,600 colleges are listed—including four-year, two-year, and technical schools sorted by state! The guide features

• insights—from the professors themselves—on how each major is taught, what preparation students will need, career options and employment prospects, and much more
