ECOLOGY DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

Ecology is an especially unpopular major. On average, each subject awards close to 6,000 four-year degrees per annum; 835 people last May earned a bachelor's degree in ecology, making it the 232nd most popular subject across the country. 96 of those students attended one college, Iowa State University. 112 of those degrees were earned at colleges in New York.

65 colleges in the country offer an undergrad degree in ecology; ipso facto, it may possibly not be easy to rout out the best school. At the undergraduate level, the typical field is 3 times more universally offered than ecology., making it the 230th most commonly offered U.S. major.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 71% of last spring's degrees in ecology were undergraduate degrees; 29% were postgraduate degrees. Ecology is the 209th most popular advanced degree in the US, with 346 degrees conferred. For context, ecology is 88% less popular among postgrads than the average subject.

In Total, 1,181 students received a bachelor's or higher in ecology last year.
