abstract

  • What happens to students who depart from their computer science program but remain in academia? How many students go on to study at the next degree level? When they do, are they still studying CS? How many who don't get a degree go to other computing programs, or other STEM programs? Tis paper addresses these questions through a study of nearly 400,000 students who were enrolled in U.S. computer science bachelor's and associate's programs in 2017-2018. Te results will be of interest to computing educators and academic leaders, who can compare their local data with these national level data.
