Summary

The 773,375 bachelor's and higher degrees conferred by 1,565 institutions during 1966-67 was the largest number in US history and represented an increase of almost 59,000 or 8% since 1965-66, a rate of increase that seems to have stabilized over the last 3 years. Tables provide summary data by level of degree, field of specialization, sex of recipient, state, level of institution and institutional control. Publicly controlled institutions accounted for about 60% of degrees earned, an increase of about 11% over the 1965-66 figure. Men received about 62% of all degrees--about 58% of all bachelor's, about 96% of all first-professional degrees, about 65% of all master's and about 88% of all doctorates. At the bachelor's and master's levels, more degrees were awarded in elementary education than in any other field. Law led the first-professional level and chemistry led in doctorates. The one Table concerned with awards below the bachelor's level summarizes the number of associate degrees awarded by sex, institutional control and type. A copy of the questionnaire used to gether this information and instructions to respondents are reproduced in the appendix. Part B of the Earned Degree Report will provide the detailed listing of the number of degrees granted by each institution within each specific field of study. (JS)
