Brehman, George E., Jr.
Results of a survey of 1983 Pennsylvania college graduates are presented. A total of 42,823 graduates of 127 Pennsylvania institutions were surveyed (about 71 percent of graduates at all degree levels). Statistical tables and narrative explanations cover graduates of the following programs: associate, baccalaureate, master's, doctoral, and first-professional. Attention is directed to proportions of graduates in each degree field and level that are: (1) employed in the field of preparation, (2) employed in another field, (3) employed in Pennsylvania, (4) employed part-time, (5) unemployed, (6) in military service, (7) seeking an advanced degree, or (8) engaged in some other activities. Data and detailed analysis of selected degree disciplines at each level are included. Differences in postgraduation activities are also identified by institutional type: state colleges and universities, state-related, state-aided, private colleges, community colleges, and proprietary schools. Information on the sampling adequacy of the study group is included, along with definitions for each of the 50 two-digit level categories of the Classification of Instructional Programs code that have been used, for the first time, in this report.
