Still in field by Major
 

 

This list shows the spot rate of alumni who stayed in their field after graduation for each major, obtained from the 22,497 alumni who have taken our survey.  Students leave their “field/major” for a number of reasons — usually insufficient salary, job satisfaction, or employment rates.

The number of surveys, years, major, motivation levels and tenacity all play a role. 
Not all the numbers are statistically significant — they are generated from varying survey data — use your best judgement
