Natural sciences is the 227th most popular degree in America, with 852 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #228 Preschool Education and Teaching.

The degree is offered at a total of 84 colleges across the nation, and is the 192nd most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 7% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that about 5 out of every 9 colleges offering natural sciences are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The other u s jurisdictions produces the most natural sciences graduates, largely led by Inter American University of Puerto Rico-Metro, while it’s the East Coast Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Puerto Rico ranks highest, with particular help from Inter American University of Puerto Rico-Metro and University of Puerto Rico-Cayey.

All that being said, no individual school produces more natural sciences graduates than University of Alaska Fairbanks, which graduated 121 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 natural sciences). More students studied natural sciences as a percentage of total students at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology than any other college.
