Selective Pressure and the Teaching of Psychology: The Fox and the Hedgehog.
Candland, Douglas K.
Teaching of Psychology, v9 n1 p20-23 Feb 1982
Examines the social changes influencing the educational objectives of undergraduate psychology programs. Faced with increasingly diverse student needs, program planners are pressured to choose a vocational over a liberal arts orientation. The author argues that psychology should develop a professional course alongside its present-day curriculum, preferably as a post-baccalaureate year. (AM)
