Career Education and Transfer Program Enrollments in 2-Year Colleges, 1974-75, ACT Special Report 15.
Parker, Garland G.
This report compiles 1974-75 enrollment data for 179 American two-year post-secondary institutions. The report focuses on enrollment by academic program within four types of two-year institutions: community colleges; junior colleges; technical colleges, schools, and institutes; and technical/vocational colleges, schools, and institutes. The total enrollments by academic program area for all four institutional types were: trades and industrial--22,512 (8.5 percent); technical--29,403 (11.2 percent); natural sciences--8,404 (3.2 percent); health--25,768 (9.8 percent); arts and humanities--75,150 (28.5 percent); social science and public service--32,623 (12.4 percent); business contact and marketing--29,251 (11.1 percent); and business detail and office--40,410 (15.3 percent). Total enrollment was 263,521 for the 179 reporting institutions. Program enrollment data are further broken down by sex, and full-time or part-time status. Freshman full-time enrollments are separately presented. In comparison to the 1973-74 report, the data suggest that career education programs are still growing, and transfer programs are lagging slightly behind. Data are arranged into 12 tables which are discussed in a short introductory narrative section. (NHM)
