Toward a New General Studies Program for San Francisco State College.
San Francisco State Coll., CA.
The committee responsible for the present document was established to investigate, evaluate, and make recommendations concerning general education programs at San Francisco State College. Part 1 of the 5-part final report establishes a general philosophical context, examining General Studies within a holistic conception of liberal education, and interpreting common beliefs about humanistic education in contemporary terms; 17 aims of education for a new General Studies Program are recommended. Part 2 presents several theoretical approaches to the implementation of the 17 aims, and each approach is illustrated with a specific course pattern followed by a discussion of major advantages and disadvantages. Part 3 outlines the committee's conclusions and recommendations, based upon the discussions presented in the first 2 parts. In Part 4, the committee requests the President and the Academic Senate to approve a 7-part resolution that would establish a new General Studies Program at San Francisco State. An Appendix that comprises the committee's responsibilities, several memorandums, and other pertinent information concludes the report. (HS)
