Report on Undergraduate Education in the History of Science.
History of Science Society.
Although not a quantitative survey of undergraduate teaching of the history of science, this report presents information obtained from teachers and students nationwide. The report indicates that the classes in the history of science at many schools are filled largely by students majoring in the technical studies of science, engineering and medicine. A chapter is devoted to curriculum experiments in different colleges to make the history of science a part of the trend towards broader humanistic and social awareness. Curriculum materials, such as texts suitable for undergraduate instruction and audio-visual aids, are considered. Tables included in the report show information related to degree subjects of faculty and graduate students now in History of Science, and degrees in the History of Science awarded 1968-1975 in Canada and the United States.
