The Second Ann Arbor Conference on Curricula for Undergraduate Majors in Physics (November 12, 13 and 14, 1962).
Commission on Coll. Physics, Ann Arbor, MI.
Proceedings of the third conference of the Commission on College Physics are reported. Its main concern was to consolidate the work of earlier conferences: (1) the Denver Conference, dealing with the curricula of colleges which did not offer the Ph.D. in physics, and (2) the First Ann Arbor Conference, dealing with curricular matters of schools that did offer the Ph.D. in physics. This conference drew its participants from those who had attended the two earlier ones. Part A reports the topics which were discussed, and Part B gives recommendations. Two programs were recommended--(1) the R (research) Curriculum to serve those intending to continue graduate work in physics, and those to work in industry and government as junior physicists and (2) Curriculum S, emphasizing interrelationship of physics with other disciplines intended to serve secondary school teachers, students in other major areas, and those wishing general cultural education with a physics emphasis.
