Study.com's College Major Finder
One of the site's features is the college major finder. Through the college major finder, prospective students can search for academic major information by discipline, sub-discipline and specialty area.
For example, individuals interested in psychology can search by that field, a sub-field such as developmental psychology and a specialty program such as child psychiatry. Other search criteria include degree level, state and zip code. Students may search for general information on the subjects or they can search for education requirements by each state.
Searchable fields of study include psychology, architecture, agriculture, computer science, culinary arts, visual and performing arts, transportation and distribution, mechanical repair technologies, legal, education, journalism and business.
Searchable degree levels include associate's degrees, bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, doctorate degrees, post-baccalaureate certificates, graduate-level certificates and non-degree diplomas, certificates and coursework.
Information on traditional and online high school diplomas and GED programs can also be found on the site. Prospective students can also search for online college and universities only.
