Washington State Board for Community Coll. Education, Olympia.
Based on data gathered from 26 Washington community colleges for fall 1979 through fall 1981, this four-part report presents a series of tables providing information on enrollments, students, faculty, and courses in 13 humanities program areas; i.e., anthropology, art history, English as a second language, ethnic studies, foreign languages, history, humanities and social sciences, literature, music history, philosophy, political science, social science, and sociology. After chapter I explains the purposes and limitations of the report and its data sources, chapter II compares data for the 3 years by college and program area with respect to annual full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment; enrollment distribution among the colleges; number of FTE faculty; and student/faculty ratios. Chapter III lists all of the humanities courses offered by the colleges by program area. For each course, tables indicate division/department, course number and title, credit hour equivalence, enrollment, percent of instructor workload devoted to the course, and the name and status of the instructor. Finally, chapter IV profiles the students enrolled in the program areas during fall 1979 through fall 1981 in terms of average age; sex; percent attending days, on-campus; average credit load; and educational intent. Instructions for interpreting the data begin each chapter. The appendix explains the system used to categorize courses. (KL)
