RELIGIOUS ATTITUDES OF COLLEGE STUDENTS AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY, RADCLIFFE COLLEGE, AND LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE--HIGHLIGHTS OF COMPARATIVE STUDIES MADE IN 1946-48 AND IN 1966-67.
GOLD, BENJAMIN KNOX
QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEYS OF THE RELIGIOUS ATTITUDES OF STUDENTS AT HARVARD, RADCLIFFE, AND LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE (LACC) WERE CONDUCTED IN 1946-48 AND AGAIN IN 1966-67. SELECTED RESULTS FROM THE TWO STUDIES ARE COMPARED. AT EACH OF THE INSTITUTIONS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS HAVE BECOME MORE LIBERAL SINCE 1946, BUT RELIGIOUS COMMITMENT AND TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS BEHAVIOR HAVE BECOME LESS COMMON. STUDENTS PROFESS LESS NEED FOR RELIGIOUS ORIENTATION AND BELIEF. FEWER EXPRESS BELIEF IN A PERSONAL GOD. IN THE HARVARD-RADCLIFFE STUDIES, WOMEN EXPRESSED LESS RELIGIOUS CONSERVATISM THAN DID MEN. OF THE THREE INSTITUTIONS, STUDENTS AT LACC SHOWED THE MOST CONSERVATIVE ATTITUDES TOWARD RELIGION. CHANGES IN STUDENT ATTITUDES AT LACC WERE IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS THOSE AT HARVARD AND RADCLIFFE, BUT THESE CHANGES WERE LESS PRONOUNCED. (A SAMPLE QUESTIONNAIRE AND TABULATED DATA ARE INCLUDED.)
