“#LatinoEdu: “The growth that we’re seeing in Hispanic doctoral degrees is largely a product of the growth in the Hispanic population generally in the last 20 years, and to a lesser degree reflects some improvements in the economic situation and opportunities,” said John Moder, senior vice president and chief operating officer at the San Antonio-based Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, according to Bloomberg.”

“#latinoedu: 2007, nearly 2/3 of doctorate degrees earned by Hispanics were awarded in 3 fields – life sciences (21%), social sciences (22%), education (22%). The next most popular field was humanities (14%).”
