One of the key goals of the study was to ascertain how many students in community colleges are touched by the humanities. To determine that, the survey asked for an unduplicated head count of students taking courses in four humanities disciplines (English, history, languages other than English, and philosophy), a count of students taking other humanities courses (either in another discipline or a general humanities course), as well as an unduplicated count of students taking a course in any humanities discipline. Schools were asked to supply unduplicated counts to allow for the possibility that some students take more than one humanities course in a given term (and thereby avoid inflated student counts).

The middle bar depicts the estimated enrollment, and the upper and lower bars depict the range of uncertainty.
* Includes: 1) survey courses entitled “Humanities”; and 2) courses coded in colleges’ information systems as humanities but not counted in the other disciplinary categories.
** The estimated value for “Any Humanities Course” is unduplicated and thus less than the sum of the values for the individual disciplines.
