Durham, Joseph T.
Information on off-campus credit courses and degree programs is presented in statistical tables and narrative summaries that cover: enrollments by campus and type of site, enrollments by major field of study, and types of faculty teaching off-campus courses or programs. Off-campus instruction was offered by six Maryland community colleges, seven state colleges and universities, and eight private colleges and universities. Of the 28,526 off-campus course enrollments, 32 percent were at the community colleges, 14 percent at state colleges and universities, 23 percent at the University of Maryland, and 31 percent at private colleges and universities. Lower-division fields with the largest number of off-campus students were letters, social science, data processing, and business technology. Upper-division fields with the largest number of off-campus students were business, psychology, and computer science, while graduate fields with the largest number were education, business, engineering, and psychology. Sixty percent of the off-campus courses were offered at educational sites, and 55 percent of the courses were taught by regular faculty. The survey questionnaire and instructions are appended. (SW)
