Institutional Distribution of Doctoral Degrees in the Humanities

Share

Most of the doctoral degrees conferred in the humanities are awarded by institutions classified in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education as very high research universities. Even though public colleges and universities confer the largest number of doctoral degrees to students in the humanities, in recent years, private colleges and universities have begun to award a larger share of their doctoral degrees on humanities students.
