Laff, Ned Scott
Research & Teaching in Developmental Education, v6 n1 p5-20 Fall 1989
Argues for a redefining of the concept of "academic major" for students and administrators. Stresses that students should be challenged to developing skills to invest in their educational outcomes rather than fulfill requirements of the major. Argues for administrators to abandon the concept of "major," replacing it with "fields of study." (DMM)
