Best STEM majors if I want to work abroad in Asia
Just curious about which STEM majors would be the most and least useful if I want to pursue jobs abroad in Asia (likely China or South Korea) after receiving my bachelor's. Obviously, I'll be studying the target country's language while in school on the side, but I have interests in Mathematics and Physics (specifically Astrophysics). Would these be bad degrees to obtain in terms of job availability? What are some other good options?3 replies
