Communications Programs in the Public Junior Colleges of the United States.
Barrett, Anita Goucher
This study investigated the status of communications programs for the terminal technical-vocational student in public junior colleges in the United States. Data were gathered from 173 junior colleges in 28 states. It was found that (1) 65 percent of the respondents offer communications courses for occupational students and that the smaller and newer schools are more likely to offer such courses; (2) most of the schools offer non-transferable communications courses which the occupational student is encouraged, but not required, to take; (3) few junior colleges require that communications teachers have successful business or vocational experience; and (4) the nontransfer communications course is often a "watered-down" version of a similar college course. Recommendations are made for a two-semester communications curriculum and a re-evaluation of present courses with suggestions for improving the program for the terminal student. (Author/DI)
