Dear 100 Hour Board,

What's the most popular major at BYU? At BYU-Idaho? BYU-Hawaii?


A: Dear Questioning,

Since no major at BYU has more than 1% of the student population, it's difficult to get an exact statistic. If you're interested in the largest department, that would be the Department of Communications. As for the largest college, the College of Family Home and Social Sciences has the most students.

BYU-I and BYU-H are smaller, so it's easier to get the statistics for each of them. At BYU-I Business Management is most popular, while at BYU-H both International Business Management and Accounting are pretty much tied for having the most people in each respective major.
