Forestry School Enrollment and Degrees Granted, 1971-1981
Abstract:Forestry school enrollments in all degree programs peaked in 1975. By 1981 they were at their lowest point in the ten-year period 1971-1981 and 20 percent below the 1975 levels. Women enrollees increased from 6 to 26 percent of all students. Minority student enrollments remained at less than 2 percent. Some 2,500 fewer undergraduates were studying forestry as a major in 1981 than in 1977.
Total degrees granted in all programs peaked at 5,899 in 1980, five years after peak enrollment. Women graduates increased tenfold during the period while minority degree recipients continued at less than 2 percent. Bachelor's degrees in forestry as a major in 1981 totaled 2,091 but were down 23 percent from 1980.
