Kleiner, E. L.
The University Studies program at Indiana State University, Terre Haute, is described with regard to program objectives, staffing, admissions, advisement, requirements, and enrollment. The program offers an alternative to meeting general education requirements. While it focuses on contemporary issues of value and choice, it is suitable for all majors and emphasizes interdisciplinary, team-teaching methods. The program core courses are concerned with contemporary issues, ways of knowing, and the individual and global society. Upper division seminars include man and technology, books and issues, science and public policy, movies and society, American policy options, and man and the environment. Currently the faculty for the program are on loan from other departments on a part-time basis. All entering freshmen are invited to enter the program, and about 100-200 elect this option. All University Studies students are required to complete 50 hours of general education course work, 36 hours of which must be chosen from the University Studies program, and 14 hours of which may be selected from the college's general education offerings. A brochure on the program course offerings is included. (SW)
