Proposal for a Revised Curriculum in the Day Division.
Loyola Coll., Baltimore, MD.
In this report, the Curriculum Committee proposes that the Loyola Day College adopt a 4-1-4 program. This program entails a 15-week Fall session (including examinations) from early September till Christmas, a 4-week Winter session in January, optional to the senior student but not to others, and a 15-week Spring session. The student would take four courses during the Fall and Spring session and concentrate on one area of study during the Winter session. 35 courses would be required for graduation, including the 16 courses of the core curriculum, but students would be strongly encouraged to take 36. This report discusses: (1) the advantages of the program; (2) the implications of the program, including changes in the core curriculum and the redesigning of almost every course; (3) problem areas, including grading, transfer students, and students who fail; and (4) principles underlying the core curriculum. Courses required in the core curriculum, requirements outside the core, some model programs in different fields, proposed Divisional Areas, and some specific proposals for the 4-1-4 program are listed. The appendices discuss: (1) an American Studies Program; (2) need for a full-time faculty member in fine arts; and (3) examples of Winter term courses. (AF)
