Liberal Learning and Career Preparation.
Rehnke, Mary Ann F., Ed.
Current Issues in Higher Education, n2 p1-48 1982-1983
Five articles that address the merger of liberal learning and career preparation at the college level are presented, along with brief descriptions of 64 career preparation programs for liberal arts students, and an annotated bibliography of 33 documents in the ERIC system on liberal learning and career education. Article titles and authors are as follows: "Liberal Learning and Career Preparation: An Introduction" (Mary Ann F. Rehnke); "The Economy and the College Student" (W. Ed Whitelaw); "Careers, Competencies, and Liberal Education" (H. Bradley Sagen); "Creating a Career Preparation Program: A Political Approach" (John J. Agria); and "Career Advising for Liberal Arts Students: Faculty Roles" (David R. Hiley). Considerations in these articles include the following: how the humanities can best prepare college students to meet the demands of the economy; the use of career counseling, internships, and curricular changes to integrate liberal learning and career preparation; considerations in creating career preparation programs; and faculty roles and responsibilities in career advising for liberal arts students. The program descriptions include the name and address of the program's contact person. (SW)
