Abstract: Students who enroll in post-secondary education have to make a number of choices, such as which type of college or which major to attend, with important implications regarding their future earnings and career prospects. It is crucial, especially from a policy standpoint, to try and understand how those decisions are made. Economic research on this question has focused on the key role of preferences and abilities for different fields of study, as well as on the importance of imperfect information and the effect of parental income on these choices.
