Connecticut State Board of Governors for Higher Education, Hartford.
This report provides information about the level and program in which Connecticut's colleges and universities granted degrees in 2001-2002, with information on the gender, race, and ethnicity of degree recipients. The report also provides data by academic discipline, using the national Classification of Instructional Programs. Connecticut colleges and universities awarded 30,498 degrees and certificates in 2001-2002, up 2.7% from last year. The annual number of students earning degrees is just over 3% higher than a decade ago. In comparison, total enrollment at Connecticut colleges and universities has risen 2.5% over the decade. Almost half of the students earned degrees at the baccalaureate level (49%), followed by those with master's (28%), and Associate degrees (15%) The number of students graduating with 4-year degrees rose, while the number with certificates and doctorates fell 8.2% and 2.4% respectively. Following a decade of increases, the number of minority students earning degrees fell from 4,621 to 4,613, but degrees to minorities now represent 15.1% of all degrees. The top five degree-producing disciplines continued to be business, education, health professions, social sciences and liberal arts, and sciences. These field accounted for more than 57% of all degrees (17,405 students). Women continued to earn more degrees than men. Three appendixes contain information on degrees granted by institution. (SLD)
