Summary

In 1969 Hiram College, Hiram, Ohio, launched a new integrated curriculum that emphasized interdisciplinary studies and increased student freedom and responsibility. All traditional, discipline-oriented graduation requirements were eliminated in favor of new nondepartmental courses, more electives, and more individual faculty attention for freshmen. Results of the program have been highly encouraging. Among these results are: (1) there was significantly less disillusion and more end-of-freshman-year satisfaction with faculty, courses, advisers, and graduation requirements; (2) freshmen became more liberal and socially concerned under the new curriculum; (3) new-curriculum sophomores were better adapted to thinking introversion, theoretical orientation, complexity, and autonomy; (4) new-curriculum sophomores felt that they were better adjusted and less anxious than the old-curriculum sophomores; and (5) new-curriculum freshmen scored higher on English achievement, relative to their high school senior scores, than the old-curriculum group.
