Nicholson, Starr; Mulvey, Patrick J.
This roster contains detailed data from the annual Survey of Enrollments and Degrees. The survey was conducted in the 2002-2003 academic year. It includes all degree-granting physics departments in the United states. Presented in this roster are the data reported by those departments for their 2001-2002 introductory course enrollments, 2002-200 degrees, and their fall 2002 undergraduate major and graduate student enrollments. Of the 766 degree-granting physics departments, 717 (94%) contributed to the data supplied in this year's roster. In fall 2002, there were 11,995 undergraduate physics majors in their junior or senior years, and 6,060 of them were from other countries. For the 2001-2002 academic year, 4,305 bachelor's degrees were granted, with 657 exiting master's degrees, and 1,095 PhDs. Enrollment is given for physics and astronomy at junior and senior year fore each responding institution, and the numbers of foreign students are also shown by institution. (SLD)
