Roster of Physics Departments with Enrollment and Degree Data, 2000. AIP Report.
Nicholson, Starr; Mulvey, Patrick J.
This roster contains detailed data from the annual Survey of Enrollments and Degrees conducted in the 2000-2001 academic year, which contacted all degree-granting physics departments in the United States. Of the 770 degree-granting physics departments, 751 (98%) contributed to the data on 1999-2000 introductory course enrollments, 1999-2000 degrees, and fall 2000 undergraduate major and graduate student enrollments. Data show that the number of bachelor's degrees in Physics declined even as the overall number of bachelor's degrees increased. The number of U.S. graduate physics students has declined in recent years, but the number of foreign graduate physics students has increased. Overall, however, fewer Ph.D.s are being conferred in physics. The roster lists institutions alphabetically within each state and includes enrollment and degree data for physics and physical science and astronomy for U.S. and foreign students. (SLD)
