Degree Plans of Entering Freshmen at the University of South Carolina, Fall 1969.
Fidler, Paul P.
In the summer and fall of 1969, a questionnaire prepared by the American Council on Education was administered to freshmen at the University of South Carolina (USC) and 270 other institutions of higher education. This report is one of a series drawn from analyses of these data and focuses on the item "highest degree planned." The data indicated that a lower percentage of freshmen at USC planned to do graduate work than the national average for other universities. Male freshmen planned to undertake graduate work more frequently than their female counterparts, as is the case at the national level. A relatively high percentage of female freshman indicated the associate degree as the highest degree planned. Out-of-state freshmen planned to pursue graduate study more frequently than did in-state freshmen. This was especially true at the master's level, but not at the doctoral level. Over a four-year period, the percentage of freshmen students planning to seek graduate degrees is increasing. (AF)
