Locating schools with particular college majors can be daunting, especially for students who are eager to attend colleges beyond their own area. The search, however, doesn't have to turn into a scavenger hunt if you let the federal government help.
To get started, hit the Browse for Programs button. You will then see a box that asks you to designate the major(s) that you'd like to find. In this example, I've used mechanical engineering.
In addition to pinpointing a major, I also designated that I wanted four-year private and/or state schools in five East Coast states. To select any state, just click on it. To choose individual states, click on the Use Map icon on the search box.
Bottom Line:Using the College Navigator will make your search for college major much simpler.
