The cost of a college education may depend on the classes you take.

A new Cornell University study says that more than 140 public universities charge different tuition, depending on the chosen major.

Researchers say many schools charge more for majors that cost more to teach and for majors that can lead to higher paying jobs.

Researchers list engineering and nursing majors among the most likely majors to cost more.
