Biological and physical sciences is the 145th most popular degree in America, with 2,177 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #146 Organizational Behavior Studies, and narrowly lost to #144 Middle School Education and Teaching.

The degree is offered at a total of 146 colleges across the nation, and is the 123rd most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 9% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that a bit over 5 in 6 colleges offering biological and physical sciences are public making it a very accessible field.

The mid east produces the most biological and physical sciences graduates, largely led by Thomas Edison State University, while it’s the Atlantic Coast Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Pennsylvania ranks highest, with particular help from Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus and Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus.

All that being said, no individual school produces more biological and physical sciences graduates than University of South Alabama, which graduated 162 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study biological and physical sciences). More students studied biological and physical sciences as a percentage of total students at New College of Florida than any other college.
