# of undergrad/grad students per major in these schools?

<p>Is there a way I can find this? I'm interested primarily in the differences between # of grad and # of undergrad in EE, Environmental Engineering, and general BioChem majors for these schools:</p>

<p>USC
Berkeley
Stanford
MIT
CalTech</p>

<p>I've looked around without much luck. I found some basic info from MIT and Berkeley but not anything detailed.</p>

<p>I was hoping people could either point me in the right direction or any insider students know this information.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>For Berkeley:
<a href="http://opa.berkeley.edu/analysesandreports/MajorsAndDegreesByAcadProgram.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://opa.berkeley.edu/analysesandreports/MajorsAndDegreesByAcadProgram.pdf&lt;/a>
<a href="http://opa.berkeley.edu/analysesandreports/analyses.aspx%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://opa.berkeley.edu/analysesandreports/analyses.aspx&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Also, the <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/internships-careers-employment/1121619-university-graduate-career-surveys.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/internships-careers-employment/1121619-university-graduate-career-surveys.html&lt;/a> for various schools may tell you some information.</p>

<p>The common data set for each school will give some general categories like "Engineering", "Social Studies", etc..</p>

<p>thank you! i actually found the first 2 links and was disappointed it was only to 09 but still good!</p>

<p>could you clarify some questions? I looked at chemistry 09 and there were only ~100 undergrads. is this true?! whereas they have TONS more grads in chemistry. Odd!</p>

<p>I haven't seen the career center link, so I'll take a look at that. Thanks!</p>

<p>For 2008-2009, the number of students in each major:</p>

<p>Chemistry (College of Chemistry): 165
Chemistry (College of Letters and Science): 12.5
Chemistry (Graduate): 367</p>

<p>Number of degrees awarded (this starts about halfway through the document):</p>

<p>Bachelor of Science (College of Chemistry): 57
Bachelor of Arts (College of Letters and Science): 5
Master of Science: 19
Doctor of Philosophy: 62</p>

<p>Note that biochemistry at Berkeley is mostly under Molecular and Cell Biology, although there is also a Chemical Biology major. Environmental engineering is part of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and electrical engineering is part of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.</p>

<p>Also note that undergraduates in the College of Letters and Science typically spend their freshman and sophomore years as Undeclared, while those in the College of Chemistry and most of those in the College of Engineering enter declared in some major.</p>

<p>thanks! helped. im really surprised only 165 chem students for undergrad...</p>

<p>just curious--is it easy to change majors from undecided or do they stick you with a very general/unwanted major?</p>

<p>An undeclared student in Berkeley's College of Letters and Science must declare a major by around junior year. Most majors can just be declared after completing the prerequisites, but some (marked by red # here</a>) are capped and must be applied to declare. All freshmen entering the College of Letters and Science enter undeclared.</p>

<p>Switching to majors in other divisions (e.g. College of Chemistry, College of Engineering, Haas School of Business Administration, College of Natural Resources) requires applying to the other division with no certainly of being admitted. Note that Haas does not admit freshmen; all undergraduate business majors must take the prerequisites and apply in their sophomore year. The others do admit freshmen declared in their majors; Engineering and Natural Resources also admit freshmen as undeclared.</p>

<p>Note that some majors are available in more than one division:</p>

<p>Computer Science (College of Letters and Science, and College of Engineering as Electrical Engineering and Computer Science)
Chemistry (College of Chemistry, and College of Letters and Science)
Environmental Economics (College of Natural Resources, and College of Letters and Science)</p>

<p>One source for all schools is
College</a> Navigator - National Center for Education Statistics</p>

<p>You can look up how many bachelors, masters, and PhD degrees by major for the most recent year they have data on. This won't tell you how many freshman are in a major, but at least you can get an idea of how many complete that major.</p>

<p>cltdad that is a perfect source! do you know how they get this information (since they do not publish this very much online). i do see it is a .gov site.</p>

<p>National</a> Center for Education Statistics - About Us</p>

<p>Why is this kind of data useful?</p>

<p>you could compare the # of majors versus faculty and grad versus undergrad. Would give an idea of how much attention ugs might get.</p>
