Summary

A model program of occupational exploration was conducted for students enrolled in a two-year college and unsure of their vocational goals. The heart of the academic program was a six-credit sociology of work course invoving the psycho-socio-economic aspects of work. Supplementing this course were three other courses. Three components supplementing the classroom activity of the sociology of work course were eight mini-courses, independent study, and an extensive, full-time, volunteer work placements. Thirty interested first-semester freshmen were chosen from admissions interviews to be participants. Of the 26 who completed the program, 24 were helped substantially in focusing their occupational plans. Twenty-nine percent of the staff and faculty had meaningful contact with the program. A program similar to the Exploratory Year has been incorporated into the ongoing college curriculum offerings. An ongoing, cooperative, career education high school program began as a direct outgrowth of the Exploratory Year. Community cooperation was such that only one denial was received to 46 requests made by the program to utilize community resources. (KM)
