This book sketches the development of the program, tells how that program operates and what its objectives are, and describes in detail the several courses and the examinations that have been devised to measure its success.Part I contains introductory chapters by President Coffman, Melvin E. Haggerty, Dean of the College of Education, Malcolm S. MacLean, director of the General College, and Professors Alvin C. Eurich and Palmer O. Johnson, examination counselors. Each chapter in Part II, “The Comprehensive Examination Areas,” deals with a specific field: contemporary affairs, history and government, economics, euthenics, psychology, art, physical science, biological science, and English. Each chapter is written by well-qualified authorities in their respective fields, and gives course content as well as examples and results of the tests by which the General College measures the growth of the individual student in judgment, in ability to solve problems, and in appreciation of the arts. Part III contains studies of related problems.
