Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Book of Majors 2011 is the most comprehensive guide to academic programs, with in-depth descriptions of 200 of the most popular college majors. This book answers the questions: What's the major for you? Where can you study it? What can you do with it after graduation?

This is also the only guide that shows what degree levels each college offers in a major, whether a certificate, associate, bachelor's, master's or doctoral. More than 900 majors at 3,800 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!

* In-depth profiles of several emerging majors such as game design and computer forensics.

* Inside scoop in the descriptions of majors, such as questions students should ask when visiting campuses, and also professional societies and accrediting agencies to refer to for more background on the major.
