Associate Degrees Awarded in British Columbia: 1993/94 to 2001/02.
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer, Vancouver.
This document provides background information as well as degree completion statistics for Associate Degrees awarded in British Columbia from 1993-1994 to 2001-2002. The Associate Degree is a 2-year academic credential available with an art or science focus. The British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer initiated the credential in response to requests from British Columbia's postsecondary institutions. The original curricular requirements, approved in 1991, were selected with the intention of ensuring both sufficient depth and breadth in arts and sciences. This report updates that portion of the 1998 associate degree document detailing the number of associate degrees granted by institution. It provides final figures for 1997-1998 and adds an additional four years worth of data up to and including 2001-2002, as provided by the institutions involved. A total of 4,226 degrees were awarded in the period 1993-1994 to 2001-2002. The vast majority (84%) were Associate of Arts degrees. With the exception of one year (Associate of Arts degrees: the interval between 1995-1996 and 1996-1997), the total number of degrees has increased each year. Annual increases range from 15% to 48% for the Associate of Arts degree and from 6% to 44% for the Associate of Science Degree. (RC)
