Fall 1980 registration data from six of Hawaii's seven community colleges were analyzed to determine the course-taking patterns of different groups of student majors and the client-serving patterns of the different academic departments. Major findings reveal that students seeking a certificate were taking 70% of their course work in vocational courses; those seeking an associate in arts degree (AA) were taking 87% of their work in general education; and those seeking an associate degree in science (AS) were taking 57% of their work in vocational courses. The courses taken by certificate and AS students were generally numbered less than 100, while AA students took 75% of their course work in courses numbered 100 or higher. As in previous years, liberal arts majors took the bulk of their work (87%) in general education courses, and vocational majors took 59% of their course work in vocational education areas. Vocational students continued to generate the bulk of the vocational student semester hours (SSH's) and the percentage of liberal arts majors served by general education courses continued to decline from 65% in 1978 to 60% in 1980. Other findings indicated that the proportion of SSH's generated by general education was slightly less than two-thirds of the total, and that 30% of all SSH's were in the humanities courses. Data tables and charts comprise the bulk of the report, providing combined and institutional statistics and illustrating trends. (KL)
