Physical sciences is the 325th most popular degree in America, with 293 students receiving their bachelors degree last year.

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 9% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that slightly above 7/8 of colleges offering physical sciences are public making it a very accessible field.

The mid east produces the most physical sciences graduates, largely led by CUNY Graduate School and University Center, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, New York ranks highest, with particular help from CUNY Graduate School and University Center and Rochester Institute of Technology.

All that being said, no individual school produces more physical sciences graduates than Glendale Community College, which graduated 58 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 physical sciences). More students studied physical sciences as a percentage of total students at CUNY Graduate School and University Center than any other college.
