Human Services. A Syllabus.
College for Human Services, New York, NY.
This document is a syllabus of the core academic curriculum of the College for Human Services, a specialized educational institution which trains low income adults in New York City as new professionals in the human services, through a two year work study program. The curriculum, as it is described here, presents an overview of the courses of study and does not attempt to convey the developmental process involved in the teacher student interaction. The bibliographies listed represent the resources used in preparing the required and supplementary readings for each aspect of the curriculum. The first year is organized around such interdisciplinary units as: the individual; man in society; the community survey; and social change. The second year academic core curriculum is both more flexible and directly related to the field experience. The units involved include principles of teaching; principles of social work; psychology; urban changes; literature, with a focus on Black and Puerto Rican writings; economics; Spanish; and English as a second language. Moreover there are three research units included wherein the student may pursue a topic of his own choosing. (Author/DM)
