These displays use "Normalized" (current year) colleges and departments. Over time, changes in the structure of colleges and departments (e.g. the creation of the Caine College of the Arts) can make multi-year trend analysis difficult. To address this issue, in this display, all Majors are counted as if today's structure of departments and colleges existed throughout the analysis period in question (e.g. the departments that are in the College of the Arts today are grouped as a "College of Arts" throughout, even though that college has only existed for a few years).
This adjustment is made by grouping students by major, and then creating department and college totals based on the current college and departmental structure at USU. Because of this adjustment, total numbers for some departments and/or colleges may not match federally reported numbers for College and Department views in prior years.
The College and Deparment views show Headcount (by Primary or Secondary Major) and Number of Student Credit hours taught by the College or Department. This allows us to analyze the number of students enrolled in a Department and also the number of total credit hours taught delivered to all USU students by a department.
The Major Program screen shows the number of Primary Majors and the number of students that graduated with a degree from a particular program. The Secondary Majors view shows the second declared majors (for students who have multiple majors) for a particular program. Some departments/programs enroll higher percentages of students with secondary majors.
The Student Campus filter shows where students took the majority of their Student Credit Hours (Logan, Remote Campus and Distance Education, USUE).
