The question often asked by high school and independent counselors is something like, "What college offers degrees in <insert major name>. While this can't help you know what colleges offer a specific degree, it can tell you which colleges awarded those degrees in 2019.
It can also help you see the shape of degrees awarded in the US, and even dive deeper into a specific college to see what types of degrees
It's pretty straight-forward, but there are also some features you need to be aware of. If you know how to Tableau, go ahead and dive right in.
The first view using the tabs across the top shows all degrees awarded by US colleges in 2019. From there, you can choose any specific combination of student and college characteristics: For instance, if you want to find which institutions award the most bachelor's degrees at public universities in the southwest, just click. If you then want to find which of those colleges offer the most degrees in History, just start typing "history" in the box at upper right.
You'll see lots of options, including general history, military history, Asian history, and many others. Click the boxes to choose the ones you want.
If you make all those choices and select "General History" you'll see that UT-Austin leads the pack with 147.
To clear the degree name, click the X to the right of it in the filter.
The second view starts with the high-level overview. Choose a single institution by typing any part of the name in the Institution Name box. It works just like the major box on the first view. Once you have that college selected, you can filter further by clicking on a bar in any of the other charts. Give it a try; clear by clicking on white space.
As always, let me know what you find.
