This report presents weekly student contact hours (WSCH) by discipline and instructional program for day and evening students enrolled in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) for fall semesters 1973-1977. In fall 1977, the district offered 224 instructional programs compared to 215 in fall 1973; 18 programs had been deleted and 26 new ones added. WSCH data for the district's 10 largest disciplines (business and management, education, fine and applied arts, social science, letters, engineering, mathematics, physical science, psychology, and health professions) indicated that business and management has been the largest discipline since fall 1973. Within business and management, management, real estate, marketing, office machines, and travel programs showed significant gains in fall 1977. Social science, the second largest discipline since 1973, dropped to fourth in 1977. It was replaced by education, which showed increases in special, cooperative, physical, and health education program enrollments. Due to the new Learning Skills program, Interdisciplinary Studies showed the largest gain in 1977 (26.1%). Public Affairs and Services exhibited the greatest decline (27.9%). The data are displayed in tabular format. (Author/TR)
