Degrees Granted and Program Production by Arkansas Institutions of Higher Education, 1981-82. Report 82-3.
Pittman, Laura L.
Data on degrees conferred by state and private Arkansas colleges and universities are presented, along with a narrative description of trends. Total degree production increased 7.3 percent over the 1977-1978 to 1981-1982 period, rising to 11,345 degrees. While total figures for the state-supported institutions increased annually, degree production at the private colleges tended to fluctuate. Degree production at the different levels remained relatively constant. With regard to subject field, most decreases occurred in traditional liberal arts and education subject areas. At the bachelors level, comparatively large increases have taken place in business and management, computer and information sciences, communications, engineering, and the physical sciences. Tables include an institutional listing of certificates and degrees conferred at the associate, bachelors, masters, and doctoral levels; enrollment by major field of study in certificate, associate, upper division undergraduate and graduate programs; first professional degrees conferred; and degrees and other formal awards conferred for public and private four-year institutions. In addition, in extensive appendices, listings of degrees granted are converted from the Higher Education General Information Survey codes to the Classification of Instructional Programs coding system.
