The Redefined Baccalaureate: A Proposal for the Establishment of a Modular Achievement Program at Bowling Green State University.
Moore, Hollis A.
This document contains the proposal to redesign the baccalaureate degree at Bowling Green State University. The proposal ties together 3 principal efforts. The first of these is a complete reform of the general education and particularly the freshman year experience. A second major theme is the development of new program lines that cut across traditional departments and that follow broad career directions. The third interest is in cost-of-college for the students at this state-supported university. In short, this proposal calls for a major commitment on the part of the University starting in the fall of 1972 with 8% of the freshmen, carefully chosen to represent a broad range of abilities; the plan assumes curriculum reform based upon a new approach to the freshman year followed by opportunities for a variety of career-oriented programs. Also this proposal introduced opportunities for an interim year in which students can participate in significant off-campus experiences without significant payment to the University. The proposal contains: (1) curricular modules based on student development objectives; (2) integrated academic and residential programs; (3) specially developed counseling programs; (4) opportunities for a shortened baccalaureate; and (5) more program options for faculty as well as students. The appendices contain proceedings of a conference on innovative teaching. (Author/PG)
