THE AMERICAN COLLEGE AND INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION. NEW DIMENSIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION, NUMBER 27.
ABRAMS, IRWIN; ARNOLD, DAVID B.
THIS REVIEW OF LITERATURE DESCRIBES AND ANALYZES (1) THE NATURE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION, (2) THE COURSE OF DEVELOPMENT THAT BROUGHT CURRICULUM OFFERINGS TO THEIR CURRENT LEVEL, AND (3) THE PARTICIPANTS IN INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION--THE FACULTY MEMBERS, THE STUDENTS, THE GOVERNMENT, AND THE PRIVATE AGENCIES INTERESTED IN STIMULATING INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION. THE AUTHOR DEFINES THE AREA OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION AS "THAT WHICH IS TAUGHT, STUDIED, AND LEARNED IN SUBJECT MATTER THAT REACHES BEYOND THE NATIONAL CULTURE OR IN A LEARNING SITUATION OUTSIDE IT." HE ALSO VOICES DISSATISFACTION WITH THE TERM OF "NON-WESTERN STUDIES," REGARDING IT AS UNSATISFACTORY BECAUSE IT COULD BE VIEWED AS REPRESENTING ONLY A DIVISION BETWEEN "EAST" AND "WEST" RATHER THAN SUGGESTING A WORLD VIEW. THE TWO LEVELS OF COURSES OFFERED IN AMERICAN LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES ARE ANALYZED. THESE ARE DISCUSSED IN THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES--(1) UPPER DIVISION SPECIALIZED COURSES IN INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, LANGUAGE AND AREA STUDIES, COMPARATIVE STUDIES, TOPICAL STUDIES, AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES, AND (2) LOWER-DIVISION GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES IN WORLD CIVILIZATION, INTEGRATED AREA STUDIES, AND CONTEMPORARY WORLD ISSUES. DISCUSSIONS ARE GIVEN OF (1) THE SPECIALIZED KIND OF FACULTY NEEDED, (2) FOREIGN STUDENTS ON AMERICAN CAMPUSES, (3) AMERICAN UNDERGRADUATES ABROAD, (4) PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS INTERESTED IN ENCOURAGING INTERNATIONAL STUDY PROGRAMS IN AMERICAN UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION, (5) THE INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1966 AND OTHER LEGISLATION TO PROVIDE FUNDS, AND (6) THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT DISTRIBUTE FUNDS. IN ADDITION THE AUTHOR DISCUSSES NEEDED RESEARCH ON THE CURRICULUM, THE FACULTY, AND THE STUDENTS. (AL)
