Art Curricula in Junior Colleges.
Jansen, Udo H.
A random selection of 102 junior colleges in the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools responded to a questionnaire on the availability and purpose of art and art-related programs on their campuses. The responses showed that (1) most junior college art courses meet general education requirements, while some are lower-division equivalents leading to an art major; (2) large schools, of course, have more comprehensive offerings; (3) where the enrollment is mostly male, commercial art is emphasized over basic or historical courses; (4) where the liberal arts are dominant, courses in the basic and historical aspects of art prevail; (5) on campuses with more occupational offerings, commercial art and craft classes are more likely to be offered; (6) when the primary purpose of the college is adult or continuing education, art-related activities (exhibits, workshops, clubs) are popular; (7) members of the art faculty generally want a more comprehensive program, covering the many purposes for which art is studied; and (8) the size and primary purpose of each college determines the kind and scope of the art program.
