Graduate Education, Enrollment, and Degrees in the United States

National Science Foundation - Graduate Education, Enrollment, and Degrees in the United States

“Graduate education in S&E contributes to global competitiveness, producing the highly skilled workers of the future and the research needed for a knowledge-based economy. In 2009, the Council of Graduate Schools and the Educational Testing Service formed a joint commission to investigate how graduate education can meet the challenges of the 21st century (see sidebar “The Path Forward: The Future of Graduate Education in the United States“). This section includes indicators related to graduate enrollment, recent trends in the number of earned degrees in S&E fields, and participation by women, minorities, and foreign students in graduate education in U.S. academic institutions.”
