On What Basis Do Students Select Coursework in Black Studies?
West, John R.
This report attempts to establish the conditions under which students will choose to enroll in Black Studies courses. Out of 500 Black Studies students at Santa Ana College, 100 were randomly chosen to answer questionnaires regarding motivation for course selection and personal educational needs. A 100 percent response rate was reported for both questionnaires. The data indicates a tendency of students (53 percent) to choose Black Studies courses on the basis of the personal need for better understanding of their environment and its institutions. Of the respondents 17 percent indicated that they choose Black Studies courses to satisfy program requirements, and 16 percent select courses on the basis of the instructor. On the basis of the findings, curriculum recommendations are made. (AH)
