National Survey of Humanities Courses Offered in Occupational Curricula in the Two-Year Colleges.
Kroeger, Fred; Brace, Carl
In an effort to determine the humanities and general education courses required and their relevance in occupational curricula, a 4-page questionnaire was mailed to the president of every 2-year college identified by the American Association of Junior Colleges. Responses from 336 colleges indicated that occupational programs are lengthened with the addition of required humanities courses. The author feels that humanities courses should be optional in occupational curricula and recommends that the goals and characteristics of vocationally-oriented students be studied further to help determine their needs. Also, more innovative and practical humanities courses should be developed and publicized. (RG)
