Education is the 6th most popular degree in America, with 88,927 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #7 Biology, and narrowly lost to #5 Psychology.

The degree is offered at a total of 1,389 colleges across the nation, and is the 5th most widely offered degree. Given that education is offered at 49% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that 54% of colleges offering education are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The southeast produces the most education graduates, largely led by University of Central Florida, while it’s the Southeastern Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from California State University-Fullerton and California State University-Sacramento.

All that being said, no individual school produces more education graduates than Arizona Western College, which graduated 2853 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 education). More students studied education as a percentage of total students at Turtle Mountain Community College than any other college.
