This third revision of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) updates and modifies education program classifications, providing a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking, assessment, and reporting of field of study and program completions activity. This edition has also been adopted as the standard field of study taxonomy by Canada. The CIP contains these sections: (1) an introduction, with information about CIP development and contents; (2) an index of CIP-2000 codes and program titles; and (3) the taxonomy, with the full listing of program codes, titles, and definitions in four chapters devoted to academic and occupationally specific programs; dental, medical, and veterinary residency programs; technology education and industrial arts programs; and personal improvement and leisure arts programs. Five appendixes list French (Canadian) language and literature programs, programs deleted from CIP taxonomies, CIP codes added to this edition, an alphabetical listing of CIP-2000 programs, and a glossary.
