Students Enrolled for Advanced Degrees Fall 1966.
Chandler, Marjorie O.
An advanced enrollment questionnaire was sent to 2,337 US institutions in 1966 as part of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS), the eighth in USOE's survey series on students enrolled for advanced degrees. Students were classified into 3 levels of study: first year (completed less than 1 full year of required study for an advanced or first-professional degree), terminal year (expected to complete all doctoral or professional degree requirements by June 30, 1967), and intermediate year (between the two levels above). The report has 6 tables showing actual counts for 706 reporting institutions, which accounted for about 95% of fall 1966 advanced degree enrollments. Table 1 applies to students pursuing master's and doctor's degrees and provides national summaries of enrollments. Table 2 gives similar data on enrollments leading to first-professional degrees. Table 3 classifies enrollments by subject matter specialization. In Table 4 enrollments for master's and doctor's degrees are shown by level, sex of student, and attendance status at each institution listed, by state, and Table 5 provides similar data for first-professional enrollment. An institutional listing of enrollments in each field of study is provided in Table 6. It is estimated that student enrollments rose 9% from fall 1965 (535,000) to fall 1966 (583,000), 60% of which were reported by public institutions. Two appendices provide additional information.
