Suffolk County Community Coll., Selden, NY.
PHASE ONE OF THIS STUDY IS A FOLLOWUP, BEGINNING MARCH 1968, OF GRADUATES OF OCCUPATIONAL CURRICULUMS. OF THE 429 GRADUATES QUESTIONED, 211 (49.18 PERCENT) REPLIED. INFORMATION WAS SOUGHT ON THE JOBS THEY TOOK, THE SALARY RANGES, THE KIND OF FIRMS HIRING THEM, HOW MANY WENT ON TO 4-YEAR SCHOOLS, WHICH SCHOOLS THEY WENT TO, AND WHETHER ON A FULL- OR PART-TIME BASIS. THE QUESTIONNAIRE ALSO ASKED THE STUDENTS IF THEY HAD ACQUIRED AT THE COLLEGE THE NECESSARY SKILLS FOR THEIR CAREERS AND IF THEY HAD SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING THE CURRICULUM. GRADUATES OF THE FOLLOWING NINE CURRICULUMS WERE REPRESENTED--(1) ACCOUNTING, (2) BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, (3) ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY, (4) ENGINEERING SCIENCE, (5) MARINE TECHNOLOGY, (6) MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY, (7) NURSING, (8) RETAIL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT, AND (9) SECRETARIAL SCIENCE. A COPY OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE IS INCLUDED. PHASE TWO OF THE STUDY WILL BE DIRECTED TO EMPLOYERS. THEIR REPLIES WILL HELP TO DETERMINE THE BEST LEVEL OF SPECIALIZATION IN A COURSE, THE RIGHT BALANCE BETWEEN SKILL AND THEORY, AND THE CORRECT PROPORTION OF GENERAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION. (HH)
