Fields of Study

The United States offers study options for every career and academic research area imaginable. For most fields, the application process follows the model described in our sections on Undergraduate Study in the United States or Graduate Study in the United States. Start with these two sections to learn the fundamentals of selecting a program and to find links to general college and university search sites where you can identify U.S. institutions offering your field of interest.

You may also want to visit our Other U.S. Study Options section if you are interested in postgraduate research, English language or other nondegree training, or distance education.

This section of our Web site focuses on fields of study for which there may be special application requirements (such as programs in the arts and the health professions) as well as very popular, emerging, and specialized areas of study on which students from the Middle East/North Africa commonly have questions.

We will be continuing to expand this section so please check back regularly to see additions. Have a question not currently answered? Please ask us or contact your nearest EducationUSA center. Most centers hold regular presentations focusing on such topics on graduate medical education and M.B.A. study.
