UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM PATTERNS--A SURVEY OF BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS IN THE HUMANITIES. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
TUTTLE, DONALD R.; NEUDLING, CHESTER L.
A STUDY OF UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM PATTERNS IN THE HUMANITIES WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE TOTAL CREDITS NECESSARY FOR GRADUATION MUST BE IN THE AREA IN WHICH THE STUDENT MAJORS. THE STUDY IS CONCERNED NOT WITH DETAILS OF SPECIFIC COURSE REQUIREMENTS, BUT WITH BROAD REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE AND THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN ENGLISH, SPANISH, OR SPEECH AND DRAMA. RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE AVERAGE REQUIREMENT FOR A MAJOR IN ENGLISH IS 45 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL REQUIREMENTS FOR A BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE AND 50 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL REQUIREMENTS FOR A BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE. FOR BOTH THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE AND THE BACHELOR OF ARTS IN SPANISH AND THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN SPEECH AND DRAMA, THE AVERAGE REQUIREMENT IS 25 PERCENT. FOR A BACHELOR OF ARTS IN SPEECH AND DRAMA THE AVERAGE REQUIREMENT IS 24 PERCENT. INFORMATION IS ALSO PROVIDED ON THE DIVERSITY OF REQUIREMENTS, SIMILARITY IN DEGREE PROGRAMS, AND PERCENTAGE OF CREDITS WHICH A MAJOR IN ENGLISH, SPANISH, OR SPEECH AND DRAMA MUST ACQUIRE IN NON-MAJOR AREAS OF STUDY. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED IN "UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM PATTERNS--A SURVEY OF BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS IN SELECTED FIELDS, 1962-63," 1965, PAGES 33-44, AND IS AVAILABLE FOR 35 CENTS FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402.
