You should go to bed earlier tonight
According to a new survey, architecture students are the most sleep-deprived majors in America. Sleeping just 5.28 hours a night on average, architects are not only the hardest-working, but also the sleepiest.
In addition, nearly 80% of architects reported that they had fallen asleep in class at least once compared to 55% of all students.
Next down the table are nurses, who average just over 5.6 hours of sleep a night or 5 hours and 36 minutes. On the other end of the spectrum, the most well-rested majors are Microbiologists who surprisingly reported that they get over 7 hours sleep, the recommended amount for adults according to the CDC.
See where your major ranks below – the stats come from over 1500 US students from 41 states, who replied to the Tab’s sleep survey and self-reported the amount of sleep they get per night on average.
