Systems science and theory is the 291st most popular degree in America, with 441 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #292 Science Teacher Education, and narrowly lost to #290 Civil Engineering Technologies.

The degree is offered at a total of 19 colleges across the nation, and is the 385th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 5% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that in the neighborhood of 1 out of 2 colleges offering systems science and theory are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The mid east produces the most systems science and theory graduates, largely led by California University of Pennsylvania, while it’s the University Athletic Association that leads conference totals. As far as states, Pennsylvania ranks highest, with particular help from California University of Pennsylvania and Carnegie Mellon University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more systems science and theory graduates than University of Alabama at Birmingham, which graduated 98 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 systems science and theory). More students studied systems science and theory as a percentage of total students at Rhode Island School of Design than any other college.
