New Directions for Community Colleges, n108 Win 1999
This issue of "New Directions for Community Colleges" focuses on the community college curriculum. The articles are based on a study of the college catalogs and course schedules from 164 colleges. The featured articles are: (1) "A Historical and Contemporary View of the Community College Curriculum" (Gwyer Schuyler); (2) "The Liberal Arts" (Florence B. Brawer); (3) "A Statistical Portrait of the Non-Liberal Arts Curriculum" (James Palmer); (4) "Dimensions of General Education Requirements" (Paula Zeszotarski); (5) "Interdisciplinary Studies in the Community Colleges" (Arianne Abell Walker); (6) "The Importance of Community College Honors Programs" (Charles Outcalt); (7) "English as a Second Language in the Community College Curriculum" (Elaine W. Kuo); (8) "Status of Multicultural Education in the Curriculum" (William E. Piland, Alexandria Piland, Shelly Hess); (9) "Scratching the Surface: Distance Education in the Community Colleges" (Carol A. Kozeracki); and (10) "Sources and Information: Forces Influencing the Curriculum" (Jennifer Rinella Keup). In general, the contents of this volume illustrate that although new fields of study and new modes of delivery are emerging, traditional liberal arts course offerings remain a stabilizing force.
