Uncommon Programs in Southern Colleges and Universities: Degrees Awarded in 1963-64.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
This summary of higher educational programs which are relatively uncommon within the 15 Southern Regional Education Board states is based on an OE report on earned degrees conferred in 1963-64. Attention is focused on programs that are interesting by virtue of their scarcity, either in content or in terms of their position in an institution's curriculum. "Uncommon" programs usually refers to those having a discrete character, often fairly expensive to operate, and for which a limited but steady demand exists. The data is presented in a table divided into columns indicating: Field and USOE Code, Degree Level, Southern Institutions Awarding Degree in 1963-64, Number of Degrees Awarded, and Remarks. The compilation is useful in that it can point out possible areas for interinstitutional cooperation. It also provides guidance personnel with more comprehensive information for advising students. And third, institutions now offering these programs can note variations of the same courses being offered by other regional universities, and can thereby, if they wish, go on to investigate the usefulness of differently designed programs.
