Nicholson, Starr; Mulvey, Patrick J.
This roster contains detailed data from the annual Survey of Enrollments and Degrees conducted in the 2001-2002 academic year. The roster contains data reported by physics departments in the United States for their 2000-2001 introductory course enrollments, 2000-2001 degrees, and fall 2001 undergraduate major and graduate student enrollments. Of the 768 degree-granting physics departments, 720 (94%) contributed to the data in this roster. In fall 2001, there were 5,599 juniors majoring in physics and 6,521 seniors. Of the 11,402 graduate students in physics in fall 2001, 5,807 were from foreign countries. There were 4,091 bachelor's degrees awarded in physics in 2000-2001, and 701 existing master's students. In that academic year, 1,157 PhDs were awarded in physics. The roster lists institutions alphabetically within each state. It includes enrollment and degree data for physics, physical science, and astronomy for U.S. and foreign students. (SLD)
