Degrees and Certificates Conferred by Connecticut Institutions of Higher Education, 1998-99. Report.
Connecticut State Board of Governors for Higher Education, Hartford.
This report provides information about the 26,697 degrees and certificates granted by Connecticut colleges and universities between July 1, 1998 and June 30, 1999. Data are included on the gender and race or ethnicity of the recipients, and data are broken into academic disciplines following the Classification of Instructional Programs. The 29,697 degrees and certificates in 1998-1999 represent an increase of 3.9% over the previous year. This increase represents both an increase in reporting and an actual increase in recipients. This is particularly true for certificate programs, up 74.2%; degrees have not changed greatly, although master's degrees increased by 6.0%. Decreases occurred in first professional degrees, doctorates, and greater-than-1-year certificates. Minorities in Connecticut earned more degrees in 1998-1999 than in any previous recording period. The 5 most popular disciplines in which degrees and certificates were awarded were: (1) Business Management and Administrative Services (5,677); (2) Health Professions and Related Sciences (3,209); (3) Education (3,170); (4) Social Sciences and History (2,712); and (5) Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies, and Humanities (2,247).
