Higher Education in the U.S.S.R.: Curriculums, Schools, and Statistics.
Rosen, Seymour M.
This study is designed to provide more comprehensive information on Soviet higher learning emphasizing its increasingly close alignment with Soviet national planning and economy. Following introductory material, Soviet curriculums in higher education and schools and statistics are reviewed. Highlights include: (1) A major development in Soviet higher education is the increase in "production practice," in line with Soviet educational reforms initiated in 1958; (2) The pattern of supervision of Soviet higher education in conformity with the Soviet concept that education must be "linked with life;" (3) Soviet higher education has no equivalent to liberal arts education; (4) The "plant-higher technical school" is also a new development in Soviet higher education; and (5) Part-time education, including evening and correspondence study, is the principal type of higher education in the U.S.S.A. Appendices are included. (Author/MJM)
