An Investigation into Nine General Areas and Forty-four Specific Sub-Areas of Physical Education Currently in Existence Within the Two Year Institutions of Higher Learning Within the Continental United States, 1970-1971.
Stier, William F., Jr.
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the present status of programs in 2-year college physical education departments. Questionnaires were sent to a national sample of 140 institutions; 74 or 53% were returned. Besides noting the size of the departments, the type of governance of the schools, and the size of the college communities, data on the training and experience of the faculty is reported. A majority of the colleges had liberal arts and vocational-technical curricula, and the physical education departments offered activity or service classes to the student body as a whole. A list of the types of activities and classes reported is included. Other details about the programs such as departmental requirements, grading practices, professional curricular offerings, intramurals and extramurals, the athletic programs, and the facilities available are described.
