Thesis (M.A.)—University of Nebraska—Lincoln, 1970. Department of Speech and Dramatic Art.
It is the purpose of this study to survey the status of the speech education programs in the public two-year colleges in Missouri.The problem is twofold: (1) to find out what the status of the departments, course offerings, staff, facilities, and extra-curricular activities in the two-year colleges of Missouri is and, (2) to see how the two-year colleges compare with other Missouri colleges, specifically liberal arts colleges, state colleges, and the state university.
It is necessary to clarify the term “two-year college”.The author defines this term as an institution which is called junior college and/or community college.In this study, these three terms are used interchangeably to refer to the schools that offer two years of collegiate instruction and/or include in its curriculum various programs which prepare students to enter different vocations and serve the educational needs of the community.
