Degrees Awarded by Major Report

This article covers how to run and interpret the Degrees Awarded by Major report on the Degrees dashboard.

What does this report show?

The Degrees Awarded By Major report shows charts and tables for all degrees awarded for the term(s) selected. The charts provide a visual representation of the data. The tables show the number of degrees  awarded for each academic career and each degree type. Users can click  on a degree type to get a breakdown of the degree by major.

Note: when an individual student had a double major, only their first major will show in this report; information on their second major will appear on the Second Major Associated with Degrees Awarded report.

Degree counts on this report reflect the number of degrees awarded, not the number of students who received degrees; a single student may have been awarded multiple degrees.

Accessing the Report

2. Click on Dashboards and select Degrees.

Dashboard select

3. Click the Degrees Awarded by Major tab on the Degrees dashboard.
