The publication Business Insider recently published a graphic indicating the most popular major in each state.
Some interesting findings include the following:
- Wyoming has a lot of anthropology majors. This must be due to the efforts of my college dorm mate, Sarah Strauss, who is on the faculty there.
- Florida is full of criminologists. These folks must also be fans of Carl Hiassen.
- Alabama has a bunch of school counselors, despite the fact that most public schools have had to decrease the number of school counselors. Maybe someone should tell the kids in Alabama?
- North Dakota has a lot of engineers, which may strike most Ivy League colleges as interesting, as they regularly have a hard time finding qualified candidates to apply to those schools.
