We present a statistical description of the astronomy major as it is offered in U.S. colleges and universities. There is substantial variation from institution to institution, but the physics requirements for the astronomy major are more uniform than the astronomy requirements. There is, on average, little difference between the requirements for the major in four-year colleges and in Ph.D.-granting institutions.
