Hey there! I've been through the college search process with my child, so I can definitely give you some tips. First, visit the websites of colleges you're interested in, and check out the department pages for your intended major. Look for information on faculty, research opportunities, internships, and any unique facilities or resources they offer. Next, try searching for college rankings specific to your major. Websites like U.S. News & World Report, Niche, and College Factual often provide subject-specific rankings. Keep in mind, though, that these rankings are just a starting point, and what's important is finding a college that's a good fit for you personally. Lastly, try to connect with current students or alumni from those programs through social media or online forums. They can provide valuable insights about their experiences. Good luck with your search!
