Enrollments in U.S. geoscience programs remained relatively steady during the 2016-2017 academic year. Undergraduate enrollments have not substantially changed since 2012.

Following national trends observed across STEM fields in the past couple of years, geoscience graduate enrollment levels have declined 8%.
