Professional Doctoral Degrees Awarded
» Compare all Universities at once
This is a count of Professional Doctoral degrees granted. Students who earn two distinct degrees in the same term are counted twice – whether their degrees are from the same six-digit CIP code or different CIP codes. Students who earn only one degree are counted once – even if they completed multiple majors or tracks. Due to changes in IPEDS, the doctoral and first professional degree categories no longer exist. Graduate degrees are now classified as doctoral research and doctoral professional with the doctoral professional including additional categories that had not previous been included in the first professional category. The universities reviewed their programs and made the classifications of their programs. The professional doctoral category will include all degrees in this category. Medicine, Law, and Pharmacy degrees will be reported as a sub-category of professional doctoral degrees. These are degrees granted as reported for data element 01081.
