What are the Most Popular College Majors in the World and Why? The Answers May Surprise you!

Youth Time magazine has conducted a research project to identify the most popular college majors in 10 countries around the globe, and a few interesting patterns have been brought to light. For example, business and management peaks in almost all the countries surveyed, the exception being Russia. The IT sector’s popularity, surprisingly, is low only in Australia. Health and Engineering degrees are constantly as popular, as they were 10 years ago worldwide, especially in the most developed countries such as the US and Germany. While 7 out of 10 top-listed majors in China are STEM, half of the young Indians surveyed turn to the arts and Law, which are also in demand in Brazil. Read our research results to find out why.
