A Profile of Instructors of Sociology in Junior Colleges of the South.
Davenport, Ann Adele Mayfield
This masters thesis develops a profile of the junior college sociology instructor teaching in the Southern region. Most junior college sociology instructors in the South are white Protestants, under 40, and married men. 65% of the respondents attended high school in a small town or rural area; 62% received their entire college background in the South. Only 20% of the instructors were former junior college students. Most received master's degrees from major universities or state colleges; the majority have no doctorate. It appears that one third of the instructors have no more than eight sociology courses, and majored in other fields. The largest source of new junior college teachers is from the high school classroom. Salaries are affected by variables of location and sex. Less than 25% of the sociology instructors engage in research. (RS)
