A Brief History of General Education Requirements at Cuyahoga Community College.
Koleski, Mary Martin; Romoser, Richard
This report traces the evolution of Cuyahoga Community College's (CCC) present general education degree requirements, and discusses some educational issues involved in establishing the requirements and some current pressures for change, the major thrust being to reduce the total credits required for associate degree specialization. Current CCC degree requirements were established in 1965: satisfactory completion of no fewer than 93 quarter hours, completion of no fewer than 30 of those 93 hours while attending CCC, and maintenance of an overall "C" average. In July 1975, the Ohio Board of Regents established credit requirements for all degrees offered by public institutions within the state at a minimum of 90 and maximum of 96 credits for associate in arts and in applied business degrees, and at 103 minimum and 110 maximum for the applied science degree. The CCC Degree Requirement Subcommittee of the Curriculum Committee, in October 1977, proposed changes in CCC requirements to bring them in accordance with the state: upgrade the level of some associate degree coursework and reduce the general education credits required for applied business and science degrees. Appendices compare degree requirements for all students and for each associate degree throughout the college's history, and present the CCC philosophy and educational objectives. (TR)
