Curriculum Patterns in English: Undergraduate Requirements for the English Major. Bulletin 1965, Number 21.
Tuttle, Donald R.; O'Leary, Helen
Considering curriculum to be at the heart of American education, an effort to determine the trends in and nature of English instruction in higher education is based on a nationwide survey of graduation requirements of 254 colleges and universities for: (1) the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), (2) the Bachelor of Science (B.S.), and (3) the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) programs. Three major areas focus on: (1) statistical data, especially for the humanities, (2) trends in curriculum patterns, and (3) recommendations concerning requirements and further studies. Data covering credits, mathematical subjects, natural sciences, social sciences, other requirements, the minor and electives, physical education, and ROTC are examined. Changes in requirements lead to discussion of special programs, methods, requirements, and technology. Twelve tables and several figures illustrate institutional distribution and allocation of credits in various subject areas during the 1962-63 school year. (RL)
