A Report on Humanistic Programs in Higher Education.
Simmons, Ron
The purpose of this survey was to assess the extent and development of humanistic programs in higher education, focusing on teacher education. Information was gathered randomly from nearly 800 teacher education institutions throughout the U.S. Two hundred seventy-nine schools responded to a questionnaire regarding program location, title, emphasis, changes, and requisites; interdisciplinary programs; financial support; teaching methods; number of faculty, enrollees, and graduates; and followup on graduates. The following conclusions can be drawn from an analysis of the responses to questionnaires: (a) humanistic instructional programs have become more available and more diversified; (b) many programs are receiving or anticipate receiving adequate financial support; (c) many programs have a large number of students and sufficient numbers of faculty; (c) there is a clear understanding of the objectives of humanistic instructional programs; and (e) many students are trained adequately so that they can pursue a variety of career objectives at many kinds of institutions. The document contains an extensive program inventory. (HMD)
