Articulation Recommendations for Baccalaureate Majors.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
In January 1993, the Illinois Articulation Initiative was launched to facilitate the transfer of students among Illinois colleges and universities through the development of a general education core curriculum and agreements on the courses essential for students transferring to baccalaureate majors. This report provides an overview of the development of articulation recommendations and describes agreements for specific majors. First, the process used to develop articulation agreements is described, indicating that articulation panels are formed by public university, community college, and independent college and university faculty members to determine the preparation needed to transfer into given baccalaureate majors and identify required courses. Next, the bulk of the report presents the agreements developed for the following 10 baccalaureate majors: agriculture, art and art education, business, criminal justice, early childhood education, elementary education, engineering, music and music education, psychology, and secondary education. For each major, the report lists recommended courses from the general education core curriculum; prerequisites, core courses, and elective courses in the major; and courses for various specialties in each major. The report also provides descriptions of the required, elective, and specialty courses to help institutions identify courses that match the recommendations. Lists of agreement panel members are included. (TGI)
