Geoscience Enrollments Remain Robust in 2016-2017

PDF versionPDF version

Enrollments in U.S. geoscience programs remained relatively steady during the 2016-2017 academic year. Undergraduate enrollments have not substantially changed since 2012. However, a growing percentage of those undergraduate enrollments are in online degree programs, which have been offsetting enrollment declines particularly seen in private 4-year colleges and regional state universities. Following national trends observed across STEM fields in the past couple of years, geoscience graduate enrollment levels have declined 8%.
