Unified Studies Program Packet (1975). Unified Studies Report NO. I:6.
Boston State Coll., MA.
After a two-week introductory period, participants in the Unified Studies Program at Boston State College will engage in a study of eight important institutions chosen by students at a planning session in November. Each institution will be dealt with for one full week. After the spring vacation, small groups (4 or 5 people) will engage in independent projects for four weeks. The independent projects will permit students to make indepth studies of one of the institutions examined during the eight weeks. The semester will end with participants sharing their findings in group presentations during the last week of classes. Course Equivalency Workshops for students who need to fulfill departmental requirements for particular courses as well as minicourses will be offered during the semester. The participants will begin the semester developing general scholarly skills, then learn modes of inquiry associated with particular academic disciplines during the study of the eight institutions, and finally will apply the skills and processes mastered in producing a significant project of their own.
