Title:  Todayís Baccalaureate: The Fields and Courses That 2007Ė08 Bachelorís Degree Recipients Studied
Description: This set of Web Tables uses data from the Postsecondary Education Transcript Study (PETS) and the 2008/09 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/09) to provide estimates on the broad fields and specific courses baccalaureate degree holders pursue. The tables first present studentsí participation in 37 different fields by sex, race/ethnicity, age, first postsecondary institution sector, bachelorís degree institution sector, and major. The tables then show the courses most commonly taken by bachelorís degree recipients at large, bachelorís degree recipients who began in 2-year colleges, and bachelorís degree recipients who pursue specific majors. The final two tables report the five STEM courses in which non-STEM majors most frequently earned credits, and the five non-STEM courses in which STEM majors most frequently earned credits.
