Moorhouse, William F.
This is a report of the systematic development and design of the Bachelor of Science in Human Resources Development with a Concentration in Manpower Development, from 1973 to 1976. It describes the content of an undergraduate curriculum which prepares personnel for employment in local, state, and regional levels of Employment and Training (formerly Manpower) Administration programs, such as CETA. The paper also includes a descriptive study of the students, including government employees, who enrolled and a follow-up study of the first 50 graduates. The report demonstrates the need for and feasibility of higher education programs for the education of personnel in applied social sciences for the delivery of human development services. (Author)
