The most popular bachelor degrees granted in the U.S.

Ever wonder what most people study in college? It's good to know, but that doesn't mean it's the perfect major for you. More students can mean more competition and consequently warrant more degree- and career-specialization in study planning. And just because a major is pouplar (or even less popular but with more career opportunities) doesn't mean it's your best fit. OccupationProfessor.com testing takes all elements into consideration in recommending your best scenario. Are you interested in one of the majors on this list? You just might want to learn more about its maximum potential for you!
