They Teach That in College, 3rd Edition

This book is a great resource for students who are undecided about what to major in during college and those who want to find out-of-the-ordinary majors.

Toy Design, Food Marketing, Motorsports Science and Engineering...These are not your grandfather’s college majors. But they are paths to viable careers — ones being offered by a surprising number of colleges. Helping young people identify these less conventional areas of study during their college search is the newly released Third Edition of They Teach That in College!?: A Resource Guide to More Than 100 Interesting College Majors (College & Career Press: http://www.ccpnewsletters.com).

This award-winning book, written by college expert Andrew Morkes, provides students, parents, and high school and college counselors with dependable information about unique and cutting-edge college majors and educational programs. It covers majors and programs available at the associate, baccalaureate, and graduate levels at more than 500 colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada.

“This book is a great resource for students who are undecided about what to major in during college and those who want to find out-of-the-ordinary majors that can prepare them for rewarding careers in fast-growing fields,” explains Morkes. “During my research for the book, it was fun to discover all of the interesting majors that now are available at colleges and universities.”

The Third Edition of They Teach That in College!? features:

  • Nearly 40 new majors, including Computational Finance, Embedded Systems Engineering Technology, Film Scoring, Human-Centered Design and Engineering, Mobile Media Programming, Social Media, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations, Puppet Arts, Therapeutic Horsemanship, Family Enterprise, and Neurodiagnostics and Sleep Science
  • More than 70 new and revised interviews with college professors, and
  • Completely updated articles, including new contact information for colleges and universities and professional associations.

Two criterion were used to select the majors featured in the book: 1) the major had to prepare students for careers that offer good employment growth and salary prospects, and 2) the major had to be offered at fewer than 25 percent of colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
