Science & Technology Degrees






While the raw number of science & technology degrees conferred by Oklahoma institutions of higher education has increased, the mix of degrees conferred has shifted away from science & technology fields:

  • 19.7% of bachelor's degrees that Oklahoma institutions of higher education conferred during the 1993-94 academic year were in areas of science & technology;

  • This was comparable to the national and regional percentages of 19.9% and 19.6%, respectively;

  • The mix of bachelor's degrees conferred by Oklahoma institutions of higher education has shifted away from science & technology, slightly, since 1990 (percent of total bachelor's conferred that were in a science & technology field dropped 0.4 percentage points from 20.1% in 1989-90 to 19.7% in 1993-94);

  • This shift away from science & technology was slightly more pronounced on a national level (-0.7 percentage points) and negligible on a regional level (-0.1 percentage points);
