Connecticut State Board of Higher Education, Hartford.
Data and narrative information on degrees conferred by Connecticut colleges and universities in 1981-1982 and on 1982 college enrollments are presented. Findings include the following: 26,479 degrees were conferred by Connecticut colleges in 1981-1982; the total number of degrees conferred in 1981-1982 was up in the independent sector but down in the public sector; the largest decline was in education; disciplines showing the largest rate of growth were interdisciplinary studies and computer and information sciences; the largest rate of decline was in biological sciences; the number of certificates (287) and associate degrees awarded (5,468) remained stable; the number of bachelor's degrees conferred (13,397) declined slightly, and there was a growth in awards in business and management; and, at the master's level, the number of awards declined. Information is also presented on degrees conferred by discipline, level, gender, and minority status. A news release on 1982 enrollments notes that undergraduate enrollment remained steady, due in part to continuing enrollment of part-time students at two-year institutions, and that graduate enrollment was down in the public sector and steady in the private sector.
