Enrollments in U.S. geoscience programs remained robust during the 2012-2013 academic year.  Though total enrollments retreated from their 2011-2012 highs, the drop in enrollments was less than 3%.  The current enrollment trend likely reflects the strong employment outlook for geosciences relative to the continued weak U.S. job market.

In February, 2012 and April, 2013, AGI’s Workforce Program sent brochures about geoscience careers to approximately 18,000 high school students who scored well on the SAT and indicated intent to pursue a STEM degree. Students’ test scores ranged from 520 to 800 for Critical Reading and Writing, and from 530 to 800 for Math. Currents #74 examines some of the dynamics of these student populations.

Texas CC with Widest Distribution of Geoscience Majors at Public Universities

Community colleges are a key part of many four-year university students' post-secondary education pathways. According to AGI's 2011 Status of the Geoscience Workforce report, within the science and engineering disciplines, 67% of Bachelor's degree recipients, 58% of Master's degree recipients and 44% of Doctorates attended community college. Furthermore, within the geosciences, 52% of Bachelor's degree recipients, 40% of Master's degree recipients, and 21% of Doctorates attended community colleges.
