Trends in Exiting Physics Master's. Focus On
Mulvey, Patrick J.; Nicholson, Starr
Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics
A physics master's degree provides the recipient with a variety of career options. Some master's recipients will continue their education at the graduate level in physics or another field, where others enter the workforce pursuing a wide range of employment opportunities. This "Focus On" provides an in-depth analysis of physics master's production in the U.S. It presents detailed trends on the number of physics master's awarded in the U.S. including data on citizenship, women, and minorities. For the purposes of this report exiting physics master's degrees include degree recipients who left their current physics department with a master's. Some exiting master's will continue their graduate education in a different department at the same institution or at a different institution, possibly in physics.
