Facts About Curricula in Home Economics in Institutions of Higher Education.
Johnson, Lydia; Swope, Mary Ruth
The purpose of this study was to obtain information for a comparison of home economics curricula. A representative sample of home economics units offering at least a BA degree were surveyed and institutional catalogs were reviewed. The questionnaire sought data on: numbers of undergraduate and graduate majors enrolled in Fall 1968; distribution of majors within various home economics curricula, size of enrollments, number of degrees awarded in the last academic year, number of seniors expecting to pursue graduate study and to accept employment in elementary school teaching; number of full-time equivalent staff, opinions of administrators about current and future trends and about influential innovators in the field. State, land-grant, denominational, private and municipal institutions were sampled. This report presents and discusses findings of the survey. (JS)
