The number of international students in the U.S. reached an all time high in 2012-2013. 819,644 foreign students to be exact. African students have most certainly been on the move, the U.S. is the #3 choice for studying abroad.

While students pursue degrees at colleges and universities scattered across the country, here are the most common majors for International African Students.
