A Language Program for English Majors in a Small College.
Houle, M. Sheila
Midwest Education Review, v1 n2 p13-24 Winter 1969
To emphasize the importance of the recognition of linguistics study as an important element in the college English liberal arts curriculum within the relatively short span of ten years, this article begins with a discussion of the factors influencing this recent curricular development and the subsequent growing need for English teachers to have adequate training in linguistics. The results of a survey questionnaire indicate the increasing importance of linguistics in Iowa colleges and universities and identify general or introductory linguistics, modern grammar, and history of the language courses as those most frequently offered in this subject field. A description of the linguistic program at Clarke College is offered as a model of how linguistic course offerings can be expanded effectively. Also included are a brief bibliography and a sample questionnaire. (AF)
