A Critical Analysis and an Evaluation of the Secretarial Programs in the University College of the University of Cincinnati.
Bright, Don Emerson
The executive secretarial, medical secretarial, and legal secretarial programs of the University College of Cincinnati were analyzed and evaluated. Data were analyzed to determine: historical development of the secretarial program; alumnae and current secretarial student evaluations of the programs; requirements for secretaries hired in medical, legal, and general offices; and the general pattern of junior colleges throughout the United States and how Cincinnati's programs compare. It was found that business and related courses are planned according to community and societal needs; teachers come from business and industry as well as teacher institutions, and business and industry advisory committees influence course content and class instruction. Among recommendations are: administering placement tests in shorthand and typing skills to new students; training medical secretaries primarily in secretary skills; familiarizing students with different office machines; and providing students with a basic year in secretary skills before entering an area of specialization.
