The Combined and the Divided Language Department in the Liberal Arts College.
The structures of combined and divided language departments in 22 selected liberal arts colleges are analyzed, and relationships are examined between departmental structures and (1) faculty size and quality, (2) departmental operation in the interest of all languages, and (3) involvement with college goals and programs. Language faculties are considered in terms of size, language area, titles, degrees and training, foreign degrees, recruitment, and relation to the liberal arts tradition. The special categories of department chairman and senior man are discussed. The unique character of liberal arts colleges, the history of their language offerings, and some curricular considerations receive attention. Selected national data are included in the form of statistical tables. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AF)
