College Students and the Curriculum: The Fantastic Voyage of Higher Education, 1636 to the Present
Thelin, John R.; Hirschy, Amy S.
NACADA Journal, v29 n2 p9-17 Fall 2009
By adding student perceptions of the curriculum, we enhance the current history of American higher education over 5 decades. We draw from memoirs, short stories, notebooks, and legends to animate the story of students and the curriculum. The episodes depict historical events and cases that have shaped colleges, curricula, and students. The study is grounded in modern concepts and theories from psychology, sociology, and economics.
