Data are provided on the degrees conferred by the University and Community College System of Nevada (UCCSN) in 1991-92 and the characteristics of their recipients. The UCCSN's four two-year campuses and two four-year campuses awarded over 4,700 degrees and certificates in 1991-92. Of these, 55% were bachelor's degrees, 23% were associate degrees, and 15% were master's degrees. Business and management was the subject area in which most degrees (24%) were awarded, followed by social and behavioral sciences (17%), humanities (16%), education (14%), and health professions (12%). The majority of certificates were awarded in the areas of health professions and business, and the majority of associate degrees were awarded in liberal/general studies. The number of liberal/general studies associate degrees increased sharply since 1980, with similar trends in degrees awarded in computer and information sciences, engineering-related technologies, health professions, law and legal studies, protective services, and precision production trades. Among bachelor's degrees conferred, business and management was the most popular major, while the majority of graduate degrees awarded were in the field of education. The bulk of the report consists of charts and tables providing data on: degrees conferred, 1980-1992; degrees by discipline; degrees by gender; degrees by racial or ethnic group; number of degrees conferred by subject area; and percent of degrees conferred by campus by gender, racial or ethnic group, and subject area.
