This report presents weekly student contact hours (WSCH) in disciplines and instructional programs for the Los Angeles Community College District. Data are presented for both day and evening classes for the fall semester of each academic year from 1972 to 1976 for each instructional discipline and for each program within the discipline. A list of instructional programs comprising each discipline is included. Districtwide, fall 1976 WSCH dropped 14.4% from the previous year, a decline attributed to a sharp reduction in veteran enrollment, improved attendance accounting procedures, effects of the 1975-76 "cap" on apportionment growth, and no increase in the district population base. Overall, Business and Management was the largest and Social Science the second largest discipline in 1976, although both showed declines from the previous year. Disciplines showing the largest increases over the last five years included Interdisciplinary Studies, Communications, Library Science, and Home Economics, while the largest decreases were reported in the disciplines of Architecture, Letters, Physical Sciences, and Social Science. A listing of programs dropped and added between 1972 and 1976 is included and it is noted that, in fall 1976, the district offered 226 instructional programs as compared to 214 in 1972. (JDS)
