II-13a: Percentage of Master’s and Professional-Practice Degrees Awarded to Women, Selected Academic Fields, 1967–2013

* For years 1967–1986, the National Science Foundation academic discipline category of “Arts and Music” is the basis for the count of “Fine and Performing Arts” degrees depicted here. This category includes the academic study of the arts (e.g., art history and film studies), which encompasses disciplines considered by the Humanities Indicators to be part of the humanities field. For years 1987–2013, the categorization of degrees by the finer-grained Classification of Instructional Programs makes possible the removal of such degrees from the count for “Fine Performing Arts” and their inclusion among humanities degrees.
