Roster of Physics Departments with Enrollment and Degree Data, 2014Physics bachelor’s degrees production continues to increase, with the 7,526 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 1,803 physics PhDs conferred in the class of 2014 continues the trend of increasing PhD production.   First-year graduate physics student enrollments have been relatively unchanged in recent years, but past increases have now resulted in a record high of 15,812 total graduate students.

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 AIP annual survey of Enrollments and Degrees.
