Title

Annual Report, School of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Academic Affairs May, 1974

Description

The Annual Report of May 1974 indicates enrolling students have excellent academic potential. This would indicate that the School of Agriculture and Life Sciences was flourshing as a program. The Report reveals information about the women in the pogram: one third make up the student body. The graduates of the program reported their general satisfaction with the curriculum and also reported how relevant the course work was to their careers. The majority of students reported the curriculum was more indirectly related than directly related to their employment. The Report also discusses how SALS is pairing with North Carolina A&T State University to develop a joint program in Food Science. Students could study at A&T State University for two or three years and then go to NCSU where they would be awarded in full a degree from A&T and NCSU in Food Science.

p. 1:
"Students with excellent academic potential are enrolling in the School of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Approximately 85 per cent of the students are most heterogeneous and diverse in backgrounds and interests. One-third of the students are women. About 25 per cent of the new students were transfers from 160 different institutions...The fathers and peers were the most influential persons in the decision to attend N.C. State University. The course program or curriculum offered was the major factor in the final decision to enter SALS as reflected in a questionnaire."

"Food Science Develops Joint Program with A&T in Greensboro

Plans have been made during the past year for a cooperative program between the Food Science Department, School of Agriculture and Life Sciences, North Carolina State University and A&T State University to provide additional degree opportunities in the food science area.

Under the plan, students at A&T State University enrolled in degree programs in animal science, chemistry, and poultry science would attend A&T for two years, and if they so desired for three, and then transfer to North Carolina State University to enroll in the 26 semester hours of food science courses he would need for graduation. Such courses are in the areas of food chemistry, food microbiology, and food engineering.

Upon completion of the program, a student would then be awarded a degree from A&T University in his appropriate major and a food science degree from North Carolina State University."
