California Education in Environmental Design and Urban Studies.
Anderson, Lawrence B.
The purpose of the study was to examine California's needs in the broad field of environmental design and urban studies. Chapter 1 discusses the purposes, methods, and sources of the study. Chapter 2 deals with the Environmental Design Professions which include: architecture, landscape architecture, city planning, and their educational systems. Chapter 3 discusses factors affecting growth, and how projected growth rates and proposed programs fit future needs. The variables considered are: the demographic base; educational trends; the economic base; professional credentials; and social priorities. Existing programs in California's 4-year institutions are examined in Chapter 4; community college programs in Chapter 5; and projected and proposed programs in Chapter 6. Chapter 7 discusses the estimated needs of the environmental design professions; and Chapter 8 reports the findings and makes recommendations. The questionnaires from which data were gathered are included in the appendix. (AF)
