Five-Year Trends in Career Program Graduations, 1970-1974. [Prince George's Community College, Maryland]. Report No. 76.
Larkin, Paul G.
During the past five years, alternatives for getting the A.A. degree at Prince George's Community College have expanded greatly. Options have increased particularly in the area of career programs. The present report shows how students are taking advantage of these program alternatives. Growth programs are identified, and program completion patterns according to sex are reviewed and analyzed. The detail of growth for individual major fields reveals that a few programs in particular were sources of growth. Nursing graduated 21 students in 1970 and 132 students in 1974. In the transfer area, the large growth field was general studies, graduating 60 students in 1970 and 179 students in 1974. General studies thus accounted for most of the growth in transfer graduations, although art and music were also showing strong growth as small programs. Female enrollments have been greatly influencing the college's life and development. Females now represent approximately half of the college's students. Appended are tables documenting the trends.
