There’s no such thing as an “easy” college degree. Despite the promises of online diploma mills, there simply is no shortcut to a college degree. Whether you’re pursuing an online degree at an online school or at a traditional campus, getting a real college education takes a significant investment of time and effort. Anyone who tells you it will be easy is either ignorant or lying.
However, not all college degrees take the same amount of time and effort or are the most
With these caveats in mind, we created a weighted formula that helped us rank 10 general college majors from easiest to hardest. We’ve updated this list using a formula that should create a more accurate picture of a major’s degree of difficulty. Using available data from the National Center for Education Statistics, we were able to identify three helpful categories: the average GPA within a major, the average time it took to complete a degree in that major, and the amount of work and leisure time students could afford while studying in that major. We assumed that more difficult majors result in lower average GPAs, longer completion times, and less time for outside activities, and developed the formula with that in mind.
