Core Curriculum. The Forum for Liberal Education.
Mohrman, Kathryn, Ed.
Many colleges and universities are revising course offerings and increasing graduate requirements to provide more highly integrated programs for their students. The efforts of seven institutions to develop such a core curriculum are described including those of: Saint Joseph's College (Rensselaer, Indiana); Los Medanos College (Pittsburgh, California); University of Wisconsin (Green Bay); Morehouse College (Atlanta, Georgia); City Colleges of Chicago (Illinois); Boston University College of Liberal Arts (Massachusetts); and Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma, Washington). The curriculum revisions discussed vary and include the addition of single courses, four-year sequences, strict requirements, optional programs, open admission policies, community college programs, and a large university program. The address, telephone number, and name of a contact person at each school is given and 20 schools offering core curricula and/or integrated studies programs are noted. An annotated bibliography of core curriculum literature is provided. Basic questions and practical problems in developing a core curriculum are discussed in an article by Donald T. Hartman.
