Roster of Astronomy Departments with Enrollment and Degree Data, 2015: Results from the 2015 Survey of Enrollments and Degrees. Focus On
Nicholson, Starr; Mulvey, Patrick J.
AIP Statistical Research Center
Physics bachelor's degree production continues to increase, with the 8,122 bachelor's awarded representing yet another all-time high. Further increases in physics bachelor's degree production are anticipated as undergraduate junior- and senior-level enrollments continue to climb. The all-time high of 1,860 physics PhDs conferred in the class of 2015 continues the trend of increasing PhD production. First-year graduate physics student enrollments have been relatively unchanged in recent years, as a result total graduate enrollments are expected to remain at about 15,000 for the next couple of years. This report contains the most current enrollment and degree data for each degree-granting physics department in the US. The findings in this report come from the American Institute of Physics (AIP) annual survey of Enrollments and Degrees. [For the 2014 survey report, see ED560870.]
