EVALUATING THE FOREIGN-STUDY PROGRAM.
RUPP, THEODORE H.
A SUPERIOR STUDY-ABROAD PROGRAM SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH THE BALANCE IN THE ACADEMIC PROGRAM BETWEEN FOREIGN UNIVERSITY COURSES AND THOSE ESPECIALLY PLANNED FOR AMERICAN STUDENTS, AND THE CAREFUL TRANSPOSITION OF GRADING AND CREDIT ALLOWANCES TO AMERICAN STANDARDS. OTHER AREAS TO CONSIDER FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE PROGRAMS ARE A HIGHLY INFORMATIVE CATALOG WITH DETAILS OF ALL MAJOR ASPECTS OF THE PROGRAM, AN ADMISSIONS POLICY THAT CONSIDERS SCHOLARSHIP, CHARACTER, HEALTH, AND EMOTIONAL STABILITY, AND A SOUND ORIENTATION PROGRAM. NOT TO BE OVERLOOKED ARE THE LENGTH OF THE SOJOURN ABROAD, THE SUITABILITY OF LODGINGS AND THE ORGANIZATION OF SOCIAL CONTACTS WITH THE NATIVES, THE INTEGRATION OF SUPERVISED GROUP TRAVEL WITH THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, THE QUALIFICATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR, AND THE AMOUNT OF THE COST ALLOCATED TO THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM AS COMPARED WITH OTHER ITEMS. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE FRENCH REVIEW," VOLUME 40, NUMBER 3, DECEMBER 1966, PAGES 400-410. (GJ)
