Do you have a source of data on the costs for the different degrees? I'm skeptical for a couple of reasons. First, there may be disparities in the cost of hiring teachers in different disciplines.

Second, to exaggerate just a wee bit, engineers need big expensive labs and modern computers, whereas French literature majors only need a supply of French literature.

As far as I know (at least in the US) college tuition is constant at each college across majors, though there are occasionally extra materials costs for particular classes.

Ah yes. I was thinking of the overall cost of running the program, not the out-of-pocket cost to the student. In fact, two students within the same major don't necessarily pay the same tuition.
