Impact Survey of Career Education on Communication Curriculum within the 13 State Region of the CSSA (Central State Speech Association).
Gartrell, Richard B.
A survey, designed to assess the impact of career education on the communication disciplines, was conducted in 474 junior and senior colleges and universities in thirteen states. The survey questionnaire contained 66 questions probing the various aspects of career education, from attitudinal perceptions to practices, including fields into which communication department graduates may have entered. Survey findings generally indicated that communication departments provide few career oriented program alternatives. It is concluded that departments should integrate career compentencies into their curricula, develop adequate internal advising procedures, and utilize a variety of internship programs. (TS)
