About this title

Synopsis:

Business, Social Sciences/History, and Education are the most popular college majors today, but not every student has the interest or aptitude to be successful in these fields. Additionally, many of these fields are glutted with graduates who are forced to take lower-paying jobs or positions that are unrelated to their field of study. They Teach That in College!? provides information about interesting, lucrative, and cutting-edge college majors unknown to many counselors, educators, and parents. It includes profiles of more than 95 college majors, course listings, potential employers, contact information for colleges and universities that offer these programs, contact information for professional associations that offer career information about these fields, interesting sidebars, photographs, and interviews with college educators. They Teach That in College!? has 96 main chapters which focus on unique and interesting majors. What is a unique major? We used two official criterion to select majors to include in this book: 1) the major had to be fast-growing and offer good employment and salary prospects for students, and 2) the major had to be offered at less than 25 percent of colleges and universities in the United States. A third unofficial criterion was that the major had to capture our imagination in short it had to be fun and, hopefully, interesting to our readers. In addition to the aforementioned sections, They Teach That in College!? also features a school index, a schools by state index, and an association/organization index. What's New in the Second Edition? We have made many improvements and additions to the second edition of They Teach That in College!? We have: Increased the number of majors covered from 68 in the last edition to 96 in the second edition; Added nearly 40 new majors to the book, including Nanoscience/Nanotechnology, Sustainable Agriculture, Mechatronics Systems Engineering, Horticultural Therapy, Forensic Accounting, Satellite Communications, Ecotourism, and Comic Book Art, to name just a few; Added many new interviews with educators, as well as new sidebars; Thoroughly updated the articles, including contact information for colleges and universities and professional associations; and added photographs.
