Meeting the Changing Needs of Students: Curriculum Development.
Harrisburg Area Community Coll., PA.
This is the second in a series of five monographs written around the theme, "meeting the changing needs of students." It describes the curriculum innovations and development at Harrisburg Area Community College since 1964, which was the first year of operation. Many new and innovative courses of study have been added to fill out the basic curriculum, for example, electronic service and merchandising, mental health technologies, library technology/teacher aids, correctional rehabilitation, a state program in secretarial science, black studies, hospitality food services, and the preparatory program. This last program is designed for students who have not developed the skills necessary for success in college courses, or who have been out of school for some time. It emphasizes English and mathematics and includes a group counseling course. (BB)
