This graph shows the number of physics bachelor's degrees conferred as the first or second major at US institutions. The data include both US citizens/residents and temporary residents, the latter of which represent approximately 7% of those degrees conferred. The graph also includes the number of bachelor's degrees awarded in the STEM fields (this includes the Medical Sciences) over the same time period.
This graph is freely available for your use. You may use our graphs in reports and presentations or you may use the raw data to create new graphs and charts. Credit APS and IPEDS as shown above.
