The Community College and International Education: A Report of Progress.
Fersh, Seymour, Ed.; Fitchen, Edward, Ed.
International education, its role in the community college curriculum, and international studies efforts of Brevard Community College (BCC) are the subjects of this two-part report. Following introductory material, Part I presents a collection of items which illustrate different aspects of international activities and programs. It begins by reviewing federal, state, and local policy efforts to foster international education and considers the goals of international/intercultural studies programs and ways of initiating these programs on campus or overseas. Next, the international education activities of the Department of Education, the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, and the Colleges for International Development are described and a resource list provided. After the role of the community college in American higher education is examined, examples are provided of community college programs, in areas such as economics, environmental studies, and sociology, which include international education components. Part II focuses on courses and instructional materials developed by BCC as part of a project to offer a degree in international/intercultural studies and to incorporate international education in occupational and technical programs. Part II includes examples of international studies modules for courses in engineering technology, film study, literature, international/intercultural studies, nursing, semantics, humanities, business, cultural history, and secretarial science.
