Unified Education at Boston State College, 1972-1974 (1974). Unified Studies Report No. I:2.
Boston State Coll., MA.
The Unified Studies Program began at Boston State College in September of 1974. Its model is based on team-teaching, learning contracts, small interdisciplinary seminars, and other open-classroom and unified educational learning/teaching techniques. Boston State College had been compelled to shift its academic assumptions because of financial stringency followed by a rapid expansion during the 1960's. The planning and implementation of the first segment of the test year for the Unified Studies Programs was an example of real cooperation between the faculty and administration of Boston State College. The most significant result of the program appears to be the challenge that accompanies a new venture which requires faculty, students, and administrators to rethink their goals and priorities for general liberal arts education.
