Human sciences is the 112th most popular degree in America, with 3,142 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #113 Arts, Entertainment, and Media Management, and narrowly lost to #111 Public Administration.

The degree is offered at a total of 100 colleges across the nation, and is the 165th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 2% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that faintly shy of six in seven colleges offering human sciences are public making it a very accessible field.

The far west produces the most human sciences graduates, largely led by California State University-Long Beach, while it’s the Big West Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from California State University-Long Beach and California State University-Northridge.

All that being said, no individual school produces more human sciences graduates than Arizona Western College, which graduated 515 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 human sciences). More students studied human sciences as a percentage of total students at South Carolina State University than any other college.
