Liberal Studies
Decrease Noted
By Ai Karr
A partial swing in American
campuses away from the liberal
arts—especially the humanities—is
the trend at Oregon, though to a
lesser degree. Eldon L. Johnson,
dean of the college of liberal arts,
has indicated.
A survey of 100 representative
institutions conducted by the Kew
York Times showed that in com
parison with enrollment ten years
ago proportionately fewer students
are in the liberal arts than in the
technical and professional fields.
More in Humanities
Johnson said the same trend ap
plies here, more in the humanities
than in the sciences, social sciences
or professional schools. A general
decline in.enrollment is true of all
areas, he said, and a decline in
staff members in the liberal aits
and humanities has beer, observed.
Chief cause of the shift, Johnson
explained, is the emphasis of tho
age. at least for the present, or. the
technical, materialistic and voca
tional aspects of education' increas
ed by the last war. He pointed out
that employers, while expressing a
desire for educationally well
rounded college graduates, in the
ory, tend to hire those with imme
diate vocational skill in practice.
This is not true of all employers,
however, he said.
special Situation
Johnson said one reason for the
drop in faculty in the humanities
at Oregon is the special situation
in service courses for freshmen ami
sophomores. This is best illustrated
in English composition, he said,
where many sections are offered,
and a substantial chop in enroll
ment means the release of a cer
tain, number of staff members.
By contrast, he pointed out, a
chop in economics majors means
smaller upper division classes, .but
