Greenhouse Recruiting's structured education fields are comprised of the following fields:

Default and Custom Options for School Name, Degree, and Discipline

For your convenience, Greenhouse Recruiting provides default options for School Name, Degree, and Discipline. While we have tried to be a very large array of options, the lists are by no means exhaustive. Each of these fields are single-select and can hold a maximum of 5000 values.
