Physics Bachelor's Initial Employment: Data from the Degree Recipient Follow-Up Survey for the Classes of 2011 and 2012. Focus On
Mulvey, Patrick; Pold, Jack
AIP Statistical Research Center
New physics bachelor's entering the workforce receive some of the highest starting salaries of any undergraduate majors. Each fall, the Statistical Research Center conducts its "Survey of Enrollments and Degrees," which asks physics and astronomy departments to provide information concerning the numbers of students they have enrolled and counts of recent degree recipients. In connection with this survey, departments are asked for the names and contact information for their recent degree recipients. This degree recipient information is used to conduct the follow-up survey in the winter following the academic year in which they received their degrees. The follow-up surveys for the classes of 2011 and 2012, on which the majority of the data in this report is taken, were administered with a web-based form. Up to four e-mail survey invitations were sent to degree recipients. This report presents data from the the 2011 and 2012 follow-up surveys of physics bachelor's.
