Degrees Conferred

Use this dashboard to explore degrees conferred at Stanford. Stanford awards more master's degrees each year than bachelor's or doctoral. The number of master's degrees awarded is also increasing, in part due to the popularity of coterminal master's degree programs.

The most popular undergraduate and master's degree is Computer Science. For doctoral students, Electrical Engineering is our largest program.

The bottom dashboard allows users to look at study field (ie major) popularity over time by school and degree level (bachelor's, master's, doctoral).
