Description
  • Abstract

    This study consists of data on earned degrees and other awards conferred by institutions of higher education in the United States and its outlying areas. Part of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) Series, this survey provides complete data on earned degrees for the nation, the states, and individual institutions, which are widely used by planners and researchers. Data are provided for professional degrees, baccalaureate and higher degrees, and sub-baccalaureate degrees awarded. Additional data specify number of degrees granted by level of degree, institutional control and type, academic disciplines and specialty, student enrollment, and state. Demographic items specify sex and race of recipients.

Sampled Universe
All postsecondary institutions in operation during 1978-1979 in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense Schools outside the United States.
Collection Mode
  • Parts A and B of the survey form apply to the award of selected first-professional degrees, baccalaureates, and higher degrees. Hence, institutions not awarding degrees at this level (in general, the two-year institutions) have reported data only in Part C. As in HEGIS XI and XII, racial/ethnic data were collected for the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) from all institutions receiving, applying for, or expecting to apply for federal financial assistance.
