In fact, 2011* set a record for most astronomy degrees awarded in the United States — Bachelor’s had the highest number ever (ever!!) while the number of Ph.Ds awarded missed tying 2008′s all-time high by one measly degree (160 were awarded in 2011, 161 in 2008).

Advice to Students

Apply to as many schools as you possibly can. Maintain your focus but cast a wide net in order to increase your choices when it comes time to accepting offers. Be sure to research the specific characteristics of each program, such as degree length, faculty, class sizes, fellowship opportunities, research specialties etc. as these factors may drastically influence your decision. — Crystal Bailey, Education and Careers Program Manager at the American Physical Society, Podcast Episode #2
