After a five year study, Northwestern College has redesigned its curriculum and its graduation requirements. Academic Dean, Roy Wllbee says, "the Idea is to allow more flexibility in the curriculum so that the student can design his program to suit his needs and at the same time to maintain a basic liberal arts experience." The student will be required to take 126 hours of study beginning with the 1972-73 academic year; however, 47 hours, rather than G4, will be in required subjects. This will allow the student 77 hours of study in subjects of his choice and in his major. Perhaps the most significant change in the liberal arts program is in the establishment of courses in an integrated core which seek to aid the student to Integrate his own thinking and understanding of the world and life---to get it all together.

Donkersloot says, "Art Is a way of self expression and is relaxing. Art functions openly and changes as new forms are created which draw out new responses. Art Is a way of handling problems and ques- tions which come from art itself and from an accumulation of man's aesthetic experi- ences—il'sc from the society, within which he works. But basically art is a study of line, form, shapes, color and composition." "I am planning to teach a few years and then do further study to obtain my Masters Degree." The possibility of an arrangement to share teachers and facilities of M-OC and Floyd Valley were discussed at a special joint meeting of the M-OC and Floyd Valley school boards held Monday, Jan. 3 at the Floyd Valley High School. Principals Bob Winegar (M-OC) and Art Janssen(FV) met with a joint session of the boards to give a preliminary report on what such an arrangement would involve. Proposed was a plan to strengthen the curriculum of both districts in such areas as foreign languages and Vocation Agriculture. At the present time both school systems have the common problem of low enrollment in their foreign language departments. It was suggested that the student-teacher ratio could be improved with all Foreign Language Classes offered at just one pf the schools. The same plan could ,J>? ijspj for Vocational Agriculture !>•• cause of Inadequate facilities at Floyd Valley, This type of arrange...cut f«ilrf also provide an expan- sion of the curriculum for all students In the two systems. Principal Art Janssen pointed out that such courses as music theory, comparative Religion, Histories of foreign countries and other subjects (not presently offered at either school) might be made available, dependant on student Interest.

With the idea that a student must understand the affect of culture on a person's ideas and to gain insight into the variabilities of other people's systems, the student, in his junior year, will study another culture or may spend time in an-off campus experience in another country or culture. In order to integrate his college learning around his developing value structure, the student, in his senior year, will participate In seminars in which each, student brings his own ideas and concepts together. The student will be required to choose fourteen hours of el- lectives from at least three of the following courses: fine arts, natural science, social science and foreign language so that he will have understanding of several fields of knowledge and so that he will be able to shape his program to his own particular needs and interests. Each Northwestern graduate will be required to know one area of learning in depth. The student will pursue a major or a sequence of pre-professional courses. Northwestern offers 17 majors and 7 pre-professional programs. Students who wish to obtain state teaching certificates add professional education courses in elementary or secondary education. Northwestern has long been known for the quality of its teacher education program. The program is approved by the National council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.
