Graduate Enrollment Up in Biological Sciences Fall 1974. Science Resources Studies Highlights.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
These preliminary data are based on the National Science Foundation's Quick Response Survey of a sample of science and engineering graduate departments in institutions awarding the Ph.D. degree. The sample was designed to indicate with reasonable precision total graduate enrollment in science and engineering as well as major changes that may have occured since 1973 in broad subareas. The statistics cover graduate enrollment at both the master's and doctorate levels. Based on a sample of 360 graduate departments, results indicate: (1) Full-time science and engineering enrollment appears to be increasing for the first time since 1969. (2) The biological sciences were responsible for almost all of the overall increase. (3) A smaller increase seems to have occured in the social sciences, but the other broad areas of science and engineering taken together appear to remain at approximately the same level as in fall 1973.
