Fall 1979 registration data from the seven Hawaii community colleges were analyzed to determine the course-taking patterns of different groups of student majors and the client-serving pattern of the different academic departments. Major findings reveal that students seeking a certificate were taking 71% of their course work in vocational courses; those seeking an associate degree (AA) were taking 87% of their work in general education courses; and those seeking an associate in science (AS) degree were taking 60% of their work in vocational courses. The courses taken by certificate and AS students were generally numbered less than 100; while AA students took 76% of their course work in courses numbered 100 or higher. The study also revealed that liberal arts majors took the bulk of their work (87%) in general education courses and that vocational majors took 62% of their courses in vocational education areas. Vocational students continued, as in previous years, to generate 80% of the vocational student semester hours (SSH's); however, the percentage of liberal arts majors served by the general education department dropped from 65% in 1978 to 61% in 1979. Other findings indicate that the proportion of SSH's generated in the general education area was slightly less than two-thirds of the total, and that 30% of all SSH's were in humanities courses. (JP)
