Home Economics


This study was conducted from the campus of South Dakota State College fo Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, Brookings, South Dakota, a land-grant institution for higher learning established in 1881. The six divisions of the college are: Agriculture, Engineering, Home Economics, Nursing, Pharmacy and Science and Applied Arts. Changes in certain policies and procedures of the Home Economics Education Department of South Dakota State College have been discussed. Some of the points under consideration were: the number of colleges and universities operating under the different systems and their reactions to the present one, the location of the home Economic Education Department. The plans for a new Home Economics Building are under way, with the Home Economics Education Department having a designated area, the number of education credits taken which relate directly to home economics. Students in the local college take 22 quarter hours. In order to gain enlighten on these various factors the writer wanted to find out how the other colleges and universities of the Central Region conducted their teacher education program for vocationally approved homemaking departments and the satisfaction will lead to improvements in the operation of the program at South Dakota State College.
