Summary

A study conducted in 1976 surveyed 742 faculty members from 65 colleges and schools of business in universities throughout the United States on their views of the liberal arts components of the curriculum. The survey instrument was one used 18 years earlier, so that shifts in opinion could be noted. In general, the business faculty expressed opinions more favorable to liberal arts in 1976 than in 1958. They were more likely to agree with statements favorable to liberal education. There was a marked tendency to prefer that a smaller portion of the business curriculum be devoted to liberal studies. More than one fourth of the 1976 respondents preferred that 25 percent or less of the curriculum be devoted to the liberal arts. Business faculty attributed to their administrators and fellow faculty members attitudes less favorable than their own toward the liberal arts. Business faculty were reluctant to require their students to take work in any of the particular branches of the liberal arts except those having particular relevance to the business curriculum. Thus 85 percent or more would require economics, mathematics, and composition but as many as half of the faculty would require no other subject. Responses are summarized in tables. (Author/MSE)
