College Admissions Index of Majors & Sports 1989/90.
Basch, Rebecca A., Ed.; And Others
A guide is presented as a companion to the "College Admissions Data Handbook," which helps counselors, parents, college-bound high school students, and continuing education students choose a school that best serves the student's resources and needs. This guide allows the user to identify colleges that offer academic programs and intercollegiate sports in special areas of interest. The availability of athletic scholarships is indicated. Each school's majors are listed exactly as given by the institutions themselves, and in all, roughly 6,000 majors titles are listed. The majors are divided into approximately 300 categories adapted from the categorization of baccalaureate programs. There are also 460 different sports titles grouped under 38 headings. Tuition range and religious affiliation are provided. Both majors and sports indexes are organized alphabetically, first by category, then state, and institution. The index of majors categories includes: animal sciences; arts and architecture; communications; computer science; education; health sciences and services; language and literature; public affairs and the law; and religion and philosophy.
