Enrollment and Degrees in Professional Science Master’s (PSM) Programs: 2012 (2013 Report)

The 2012 Professional Science Master’s Enrollment and Degrees Survey collects data on overall enrollment and degrees awarded in Professional Science Master’s (PSM) programs. It is the third such survey conducted by the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) with a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

PSM program directors and graduate deans (or equivalent) representing almost 300 PSM programs from 124 institutions of higher education were invited to provide data regarding the number of applications received for admission for the fall term of 2012, the number of applications accepted for the fall term of 2011, the number of first-time enrollees for the fall term of 2012, the total number of enrollees for the fall term of 2012, and the number of degrees awarded during the 2011/12 academic year (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012). The survey generated 279 usable responses, for a 93% response rate. Of these, 248 reported students who were either enrolled in a PSM program in the fall term of 2012 or graduated from a PSM program during the 2011/12 academic year.
