Transcription

1 S&E Degrees Becoming More Prevalent From to, science and ineering degrees increased in prevalence for both genders. The trend was driven by growth in the socalled hard sciences. The percentage of bachelor s degrees accounted for by S&E disciplines increased two percentage points for men, and one percentage point for women. The percentage of master s degrees accounted for by S&E disciplines increased one percentage point for men, and remained nearly flat for women. At the doctoral level, social sciences and psychology decreased in prevalence, while the other S&E disciplines increased. S&E hard sciences now account for 48 percent of all doctoral degrees earned by men, up from 45 percent in. The definition of science and ineering used in this Report includes social sciences and psychology and is based on classifications used by the National Science Foundation. With data current through October 7 38% 24% 26% Science and Degrees as Percentage of All Degrees (, ) 28% 29% 18% 17% 11% Bachelor s Degrees 27% 28% 6% 7% 22% Master s Degrees 8% 7% 7% 7% 59% 58% 48% 19% Doctoral Degrees 33% Social All other S&E

2 Earn Smaller Share of S&E Degrees at Advanced Levels In, women earned 49 percent of all S&E bachelor s degrees, 43 percent of S&E master s degrees, and 40 percent of S&E doctoral degrees. At each degree level, the overall gender distribution changed little from to. However, there was considerable variation among specific disciplines, as shown in subsequent exhibits. With data current through October Gender Distribution of Science and Degrees by Level (, ) 51% 49% 57% 57% 43% 43% Bachelor s Degrees Master s Degrees Doctoral Degrees

3 S&E by Discipline: Losing Ground at Bachelor s Level From to, the share of bachelor s degrees earned by women decreased in all seven S&E disciplines. The biggest decrease was in the computer sciences, where the share of bachelor s degrees earned by women dropped five percentage points. In all years studied, women earned the majority of bachelor s degrees in logical and agricultural sciences and social sciences and psychology. 47% S&E Bachelor s by Discipline (, both genders) phys sci math 4% 4% 8% 1% With data current through October Gender Distribution of Bachelor s Degrees in Science and Disciplines (, ) % 19% 77% 82% 18% 62% 38% 58% 61% 42% 39% 55% 58% 42% 42% 58% 37% 38% 63% 62% Social

4 S&E by Discipline: Mixed Results at Master s Level From to, the share of master s degrees accounted for by women increased in three S&E disciplines and decreased in four. The biggest increase occurred in ineering, where the share of master s degrees earned by women grew three percentage points. The biggest decreases were in the computer sciences and earth/atmospheric/ ocean sciences. In both of these disciplines, the share of master s degrees earned by women dropped three percentage points.

5 S&E by Discipline: Gaining Ground at Doctoral Level From to, women made the largest gains at the doctoral level. The share of doctoral degrees earned by women increased in five S&E disciplines. In four S&E disciplines, the share of doctoral degrees earned by women increased by at least four percentage points. math 5% S&E Doctoral by Discipline (, both genders) phys sci 29% 6% 2% With data current through October Gender Distribution of Doctoral Degrees in Science and Disciplines (, ) % 77% 19% 79% 79% 65% 55% 35% 72% 68% 32% 28% 71% 72% 29% 28% 54% 48% 52% 46% 43% 41% 57% 59% Social
