Top Undergraduate Courses To Study In USA

by Global Opportunities Study Abroad Consultants

The USA is known as the land of opportunities and has been a dream destination for many people for over a century now. Many American universities have consistently featured in the lists of top universities in the world and therefore, many foreign students apply for overseas education in the USA.

There are mainly 3 systems of education in the USA:

  1. Universities: Universities are larger than colleges in terms of size and opportunities. They offer a great variety of graduate and doctoral programmes. There are two kinds of universities: 1) Public, and 2) Private.

Public universities are funded by the US government. These universities are generally more dynamic and vibrant as they are close to the local communities. The tuition fees at such universities are lesser when compared to with private universities.

Private universities are run by student tuition fees and other funding sources. As these universities are not funded by the government, they can choose their funding scheme themselves.

      2. Community Colleges: These are small community-based 2-year colleges that offer certificate and vocational courses to students. These courses can be opted by the international students in order to build a bridge between their current education and the next big level.

      3. Liberal Arts Colleges: These colleges dedicatedly provide undergraduate degrees in liberal arts and sciences. They can either be private or state funded. The degrees offered here usually take four years to complete.

After selecting a college, one needs to select the course to study in the USA. The top courses in the USA are Business Management, Engineering, Maths and Computer Sciences, Social Sciences and Physical and Life Sciences. Below, we’ll talk about 3 of those courses.

•        Business Management: Over 20% students, who study abroad, study Business Management. This fact makes Business Management one of the most sought-after course in the USA. This makes the USA an even better destination as 7 out of top 10 business schools are American. If a student has the ambition to become a business leader, then names like Wharton, Harvard and Columbia excite them. The other factor is the USA’s economy. The USA has the largest economy in the world and ensures a plethora of job and business opportunities.

•        Maths and Computer Sciences: After Business and Engineering, Maths and Computer Sciences attract the most number of students. Names like MIT, Stanford and Harvard are some of the leading names in both Mathematics and Computer Science across the world. The kind of infrastructure that students need in order to study such technical subjects, is found in universities across the USA. There is a lot of research opportunities in the USA, especially in the Silicon Valley, which is the hub of computer scientists and software engineers.

•        Physical and Life Sciences: Many students are now moving from traditional fields to such combined studies. Physical and Life Sciences have created many jobs in the healthcare industry. Students can kick-start his/her career as a Healthcare Business Analyst in the USA, which is one of the reasons why more students are attracted to this field now.
