Enrollment of Junior-Year Students (1971 and 1972).
Dutton, Jeffrey E.; Blanford, Barbara A.
This survey concerns the enrollment of junior year students in specified areas or fields during the fall of 1972. Its aim was to obtain information about trends in choice of major field in advance of the usual data on baccalaureates granted and thus to assist graduate departments in planning for enrollments in specified areas. Over all fields, junior year enrollment increased 3.2% from fall 1971 to fall 1972. The largest increase occurred in the major area of health professions (19.5%) and was largest in the public universities (25.8%). The life sciences were next, increasing by 12.8% in junior year enrollment. The applied social sciences and business and commerce were the next two, showing overall increases of 8.3% and 7.1% respectively. Moderate gains were noted in the public sector and slight losses noted in the private sector. (HS)
