Are African Americans Surging in Computer Science?

Cool result! The numbers are small, but it’s still a positive direction. Unfortunately, the numbers aren’t showing up in the Taulbee report, so it’s likely that the surge is at the Masters level. Still — good news!

A report released last week by the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) found that first-time enrollment in science graduate programs increased last fall even as graduate enrollment across all disciplines — including nonscientific ones — dropped slightly. But the study’s most intriguing number was hidden beneath the headlines: 33.6%. That’s the reported percent increase, between the fall semesters of 2009 and 2010, in the number of black and African-American students entering math and computer science graduate programs.
