    Depends on the talents of the student.

    I don't know where you wanna go with this question. Why do you care ?

    i sort of wonder this also. after doing a math degree i find it so much easier to understand everything else, probably due to the abstractness of math. though from my experience i think all non-social-science & non-education degrees are equally difficult. i know an english student who studies (& of course writes about) approx 1 whole novel each week in each of the 5 courses she takes in a term. that's about 5x13=75 novels per term + moderate-length (~10-15 page) papers about them. for me since i hate lab writeups i would find a chem, physics or engineering degree most difficult.

    the most difficult is the one you enjoy least.

    after trying analysis i was forced to switch back to algebraic geometry because i coul not persist to the degree unless i was having fun.

    Liberal arts is by definition the easiest since that's one field you already touched on everything to a fair amount before and you're not required to know much of anything.
