The Humanities in Two-Year Colleges: A Review of the Students.
Cohen, Arthur M., Ed.; Brawer, Florence B., Ed.
This monograph reviews recent literature pertaining to two-year college humanities students. It notes the current drift of community college students away from the humanities and other transfer curricula and toward vocational and occupational training. Overall enrollment trends are noted, as are the characteristics of particular kinds of students to be served by two-year college humanities courses. Transfer, terminal, pragmatic, honors, adult, and minority students, senior citizens, working and married students, and part-time students are considered in separate sections. The impact of each of these student groups on humanities curricula is detailed. Suggestions for further study and an extensive bibliography are included. (DC)
