Haswell, Harold A., Ed.; Lindquist, Clarence B., Ed.
There is great diversity among institutions of higher education in their requirements for various curriculums. This report, which is concerned only with the broad requirements as percentages of total requirements, analyzes the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science curriculums in six undergraduate areas that account for about one-half of all degrees awarded at the bachelor's and first-professional level: humanities, social sciences, physical sciences and mathematics, biological sciences, engineering, and agriculture. Only summary findings in each area are presented. Curriculums designed specifically for teacher preparation are excluded from this study. Data was gathered by specialists in each field by means of questionnaires. The report details the results of questionnaires on 16 curriculums for which data were received from 15 or more institutions. (Author/JMF)
