Completion of Geoscience Degrees by U.S. Women on the Increase
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has been tracking the gender of geoscience degree recipients in the USA for a number of years.
Recently released figures show that the total number of women receiving geoscience degrees in the USA is rising, following a long term growth trend. In 2013, 44% of geoscience PhD graduates were women, who also accounted for 41% of bachelor’s andf 42% of master’s degrees.
