Counts of bachelor's, master's, education specialist, and doctoral degrees awarded are reported by college and department for the past five years.

For a complete list of available reports, please return to the Blue Book Introduction. See the Departmental Changes section of the introduction to review departmental mergers or other changes that may affect this report. See the section on Calculating FTE Students for an explanation of FTE calculations.



MSU-Bozeman awards degrees at the bachelor's, master's, education specialist, and doctoral levels. Doctoral degrees include the Ph.D. and the Ed.D. This report is a summary by department of the official commencement list issued by the Registrar. It is updated each July when the year-end totals are available.

Most of the degrees awarded at MSU-Bozeman can be credited to a specific department. For a few degrees, however, responsibility for coursework and advising is shared by several departments. Bachelor's degrees in Agricultural Operations Technology (formerly Mechanized Agriculture) are credited to the College of Agriculture and counted under 'Agriculture Miscellaneous.' Bachelor's degrees in Economics are credited to the Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics because the economics faculty are located there.

Responsibility for the M.S. in Science Education are shared by the Colleges of Agriculture; Education, Health and Human Development; and Letters and Science. Degree recipients are counted under the College of Graduate Studies.

For the B.S. in Biotechnology, graduates in the Plant Sciences option are counted in the Department of Plant Sciences, and graduates in the Animal Systems and Microbial Systems options are counted in the Department of Veterinary Molecular Biology.

Reorganization of the College of Agriculture affects this report beginning 98-99. Faculty were realigned by specialty into two new departments: Plant Sciences and Land Resources & Environmental Sciences. Several majors were restructured and retitled as part of the reorganization. Majors in land rehabilitation were also moved from Animal & Range Science to the new LRES department. The departments of Plant Pathology and Plant, Soil & Environmental Resources were discontinued as part of the reorganization.

Two departmental mergers which occurred in 94-95 affect these totals. The Department of Agricultural and Technology Education merged with the Department of Education; bachelor's degrees in Agricultural Education are counted under 'Agriculture Miscellaneous,' while bachelor's degrees in Technology Education are counted under 'Education.' The Department of Speech Communication merged with the Department of Psychology, and the Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication became an option under the Bachelor of Science in Psychology.

In 89-90, the university was allowed to grant bachelor's degrees in Interdisciplinary Studies. These degrees are granted with an emphasis in a particular college, but not within a particular department. Therefore, these degrees are listed under the 'Miscellaneous' category for the appropriate college.

At the master's level, all Master of Education degrees in Counseling or Marriage and Family Therapy are credited to the Department of Health and Human Development where the counseling faculty are located.
