This roster contains detailed data from the annual Survey of Enrollments and Degrees in the 2001-2002 academic year. The report contains data reported by degree-granting astronomy departments for their 2000-2001 introductory astronomy course enrollments, 2000-2001 degrees, and fall 2001 undergraduate majors and graduate student enrollments. At the time, there were 70 degree-granting astronomy departments, 34 of which were combined with physics departments at the same university. All but 8 of these departments contributed to the data in this roster. In fall 2001, there were 420 astronomy majors in their junior year and 478 senior astronomy majors. OF the total 807 graduate students, 227 were from foreign countries. In 2000-2001, 274 bachelor's degrees were granted in astronomy, and there were 13 exiting master's degree recipients.
