Integrative Studies (IGS).
The Kentucky State University Integrative Studies Program, which is described in this report, consists of seven seminar-type models, three in the Western and four in the non-Western traditions. It is a basic component of a 53-hour core curriculum, and requires both faculty and students to analyze and interpret a body of knowledge involving history, literature, art, philosophy, and the sciences. Faculty preparation involved seminars or study groups, summer institutes, and visits to other institutions. Results of the faculty development and rationales for the course offerings in Integrative Studies are discussed. Brief descriptions of each course are given. Each fall Title II conducted an external evaluation of the Integrative Studies program; the September 1986 and 1987 assessments are provided. A student attitude survey is conducted every 2 years; the Spring 1987 survey form and results are provided and discussed. Faculty evaluations are also summarized. Letters from faculty about the program are appended. (KM)
