Curricular Reform for Concordia College.
Prausnitz, Walther G.; And Others
This report of the Curriculum Commission at Concordia examines all aspects of the academic program and sets forth recommendations for its improvement and reform. Chapter 1 discusses reasons for a curriculum study, and Chapter 2 looks at the goals of a liberal arts education in a Christian college. Chapter 3 deals with the curriculum itself, and contains recommendations about the course plan, expansion of the pass/fail option, and revision of core requirements with suggestions for its administration. Proposals for establishing minority studies, interdepartmental majors, and student participation in academic planning are also included. Chapter 4 discusses some economic considerations and looks at the "role and reality" of liberal arts colleges. Recommendations are made concerning the administrative and economic responsibilities of the departmental and college officers. The last recommendation sets up a timetable for the implementation of all proposed changes. Appendices include a summary of the 70 recommendations, results of a questionnaire sent to all students, and bibliographies. (DS)
