Morehouse College tops the charts of the National Science Foundation (NSF) as the leading higher education institution producing Black male undergraduates that receive doctoral degrees.

As of April 2022, NSF’s National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics Survey of Earned Doctorates confirms Morehouse as the primary producer with 218 Black male recipients awarded a doctorate degree between 2010 and 2020, 199 more than the second most leading institution.

“We believe that the liberal arts pedagogy, research opportunities, and professional growth experiences at Morehouse uniquely embrace the brilliance of men of color and empower to them to pursue – and reach— the summits of intellectual discovery,” says Dr. David A. Thomas, president of Morehouse College. “The obtainment of a doctoral degree by so many of our graduates is the true the manifestation of the thirst for knowledge that is the hallmark of a Morehouse man.”

Morehouse leads in Black male doctorate graduates for most academic areas including life sciences, physical sciences and earth sciences, mathematics and computer sciences, psychology and social sciences, education, humanities and the arts.
