Final Report of the Careers and Curricula Program.
Holland, John L.; And Others
The Center's Career and Curricula program bases its work upon a theory of career development. The report presents summaries of the theory upon which the program was based, of the work accomplished by the program, and of the research conducted. It also provides abstracts and ordering sources for the various reports completed. The theory assumes that, in our culture, most persons and environments fall into one of six categories: realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, or conventional. It further assumes people search for environments that will let them exercise their skills and abilities, express their attitudes and values, and take on agreeable problems and roles. Lastly, it is assumed that a person's behavior is determined by an interaction between his personality and the characteristics of his environment. The work accomplished by the program consists of theoretical studies, classification studies, applied studies, and related studies and influences. The title of each, its source, and a brief abstract are provided. The budget included $337,320 from the Federal government and $30,000 from the University. (Author/AG)
