ABSTRACT
This article focuses on junior-college instruction within universities in the U.S. The coming of the junior college, with the concomitant educational discussions and comparisons, has called the attention of the faculty members and administrators of universities to the importance and needs of the first two years of instruction. As a consequence, junior-college instruction outside the universities is influencing junior-college instruction within the universities. This has been true at Northwestern University, where as a result, the University Council, at the suggestion of the President and the Board of Deans, authorized a study of the instructional situation within the first two years. Some phases of this study will indicate the directions in which instruction in the universities is likely to be affected. The Arts College of Northwestern University up to the time of this study had never set up multiple curricula. Certain constants, contacts with a few of the many fields outside of the constants, and specialization through majors and minors made up the requirements of the curriculum.
