Enrollments in the Academic Majors: Trends between Fall 1996 and Fall 2000. Volume One.
Nova Southeastern Univ., Fort Lauderdale, FL.
This study examined enrollment trends at the level of individual majors for Nova Southeastern University, Florida. The results should provide support for the evaluation of the major, enrollment planning at the program and center levels, and more detailed context for program review and university strategic planning. The study includes an analysis of fall 2000 enrollments by major and data on enrollment trends between fall 1996 and fall 2000. The data also provide for analysis of enrollment trends in each major by racial/ethnic category or gender to provide a context for program evaluation. Majors were ranked university-wide and within academic centers by size and ethnic/racial enrollment. The master's degree in education and the doctorate in educational leadership were found to comprise 17% of the total university enrollment in degree programs. Analysis of minority enrollments by major indicated that specific majors are particularly attractive to specific groups. For example, Hispanic students dominate enrollments in the Master's in International Business program, while Black students gravitate to majors in education and public administration. Analysis of this type of data may provide valuable information for enrollment management, marketing, and strategic planning. Six appendixes contain specific details about rankings of majors. (SLD)
