With some variation by region of the United States, numbers of undergraduates seeking professional degrees increased 19 percent in the years 1972-1976; most of the gain was accounted for by women students, who now comprise 18 percent of the total. Enrollment and degree awards have increased in master's programs and held steady in Ph.D. studies. Forestry continues to be the leading area of specialization, outranking wildlife, products, recreation, and other disciplines.
