The Academic Crossover Report. Community Colleges, Fall 1978.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
Patterns of course distribution by subject areas and of courses taken by various majors are described in this report on Hawaii community colleges. Distribution of courses by educational objective indicates: certificate students were taking 72% of their work in vocational courses; associate of arts degree students were taking 88% of their work in general education courses; and associate of science degree students were taking 61% of their work in vocational courses. Distribution by majors reveals that liberal arts students continued to take the bulk of their work in general education (88%); vocational majors continued to take most of their work in vocational courses (63%); and unclassified students took two-thirds of their courses in general education. As in the past, liberal arts majors were the largest consumers of general education courses, generating 65% of all Student Semester Hours (SSH); vocational majors and unclassified students were responsible for 29% and 5%, respectively, of all SSH generated in general education. Vocational students continued to generate the bulk of vocational SSH (80%), followed by liberal arts majors and unclassified students (15% and 4%, respectively). An appendix outlines crossover major groupings. (MB)
