Topics and Trends by Major
Staying on top of the latest trends in your industry or profession is important. On the pages in this guide we've gathered links to key publications and organized them by major. Some of these are freely available on the web; most are provided through library subscriptions.
Here are some other options for keeping up with your field:
- Use LinkedIn's Pulse.
- For more variety and customization use sites and apps like Feedly to aggregate blogs and newsfeeds.
- For a deeper dive, use a database like Factiva (watch our video tutorial).You can try to find a match for your major under Subject; e.g., Marketing, Recreation, or Editor's Choice categories like Construction and Health Care. You can also specify a Region, Industry, or Company; or specify a Source by Type or under Top Sources.
