Half of all bachelor’s degrees are in 5 fields…

September 9, 2022

Which ones may surprise you…

According to the Education Data Initiative ….

More precisely, 50.8% of all bachelor’s degrees are in 5 fields.

  • 19.1% in business
  • 11.9% in health professions
  • 8.0% in social sciences and history.
  • 5.9% in psychology.
  • 5.9% in biological and biomedical sciences.


I was surprised by the number of business and health-related degrees.

Note that of the STEM disciplines, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics don’t make the top 5

Geez, if there has to be an unconstitutional loan forgiveness program, why isn’t it at least targeted at those critical STEM studies?
