Blandford, Barbara; Sell, Charles
The Higher Education Panel (HEP) of the American Council on Education conducted the present survey to determine the enrollment figures for junior-year college students in specific fields so that colleges and universities might better plan for future programs in terms of projected enrollments. Over all fields, junior-year enrollment increased 7.6% from the fall of 1970 to the fall of 1971. The largest increase occurred in the major area of applied social sciences (44%) and was greatest in the public 4-year colleges (75%). The health professions were next, increasing by 24% in junior-year enrollment; again, this growth was most evident in the public 4-year colleges (68%). Within the health professions, the major field of medical technology registered the largest increase (52%), with enrollment swelling most in the public universities (67%). Within the life sciences, the largest percentage increase was in the predental subcategory (38%), particularly in the public 4-year colleges. (Author/HS)
