Soviet Programs in International Education.
Rosen, Seymour M.
This study is one of a series of the Office of Education publications on major aspects of Soviet Education. Focusing on recent developments in training and research programs within the Soviet Union, it points up the continued growth in size and diversity of international education programs, and shows their relationship to the Soviet national objectives. This report uses the general term, international education, to designate a broad range of programs: 1) the traditional study of other lands and peoples in elementary, secondary, and high education; 2) interdisciplinary approachs to specialized study of world affairs, international relations and policy particularly in colleges and universities; 3) comparative education and cross cultural research; 4) educational exchange and study abroad for firsthand immersion in other cultures; 5) technical assistance to educational development through foreign aid programs; and, 6) international cooperation in intellectual exchange and educational development through international organizations and multilateral arrangements. The descriptions and analyses of specific programs in these categories provide the basis for comparisons with the ways the United States and other countries plan and function with respect to the international dimensions of education.
