What Starbucks Drink Would You Order Based on Your College Major?

There are two things that millennials can really relate to: college and Starbucks. Although there are many different majors, almost every type of person ends up in a Starbucks line at some point in the day. Here are six Starbucks drinks that specific majors would order!

1. Engineering: ESPRESSO SHOT

Let’s be honest – do engineers ever sleep?! This is the only drink that would give them any energy to continue pulling all-nighters!

2. English: TEA

C.S. Lewis once said, “You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.” Tea helps people, especially writers, feel sleepy or awake, depending on the type. In addition, it has antioxidants that help your immune system! A reason why tea helps writers feel more creative is because usually when you’re making and drinking a lot of tea, you’re giving your brain a break from working. Sometimes you think of your best ideas when you give your brain a break!

3. Business: DARK ROAST

When you think of a business person, you think of their “straight to the point” attitude, their sharp taste in clothing, and their vibrant personality. A dark roast is all of these things but in drink form!


When you think of a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, you only think of good thoughts. Psych majors are like this: open-minded, accepted, and loved by many.

5. Communications: PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE

What’s similar between a communications major and a PSL? They both like to relate to the youth. Communication majors enjoy figuring out what is popular in our culture, and the PSL will always be popular.

6. Education: HOT CHOCOLATE

Since these students will eventually have to deal with kids constantly, they have to have a certain personality in order to not fail: straight to the point, simple and classy – with lots of fun on top (whipped cream!!). When you order a Starbucks hot chocolate, you know exactly what you will get, and it will never disappoint.
