Excerpt from Bulletin of Wellesley College; November 15, 1966, Vol. 56: Issue Containing the President's Report, 1964-1965, 1965-1966
During the two years covered by this Report interest centered first in preparing for and then in implementing the academic calendar and the degree requirements which had been adopted in june 1964 to take effect in September 1965.
In 1964-1965 the members of many departments planned new advanced courses or redistribution of materials among courses, new sequences for major students, new ways of presenting some of the continuing courses, or, especially in departments which were chang ing from a two-unit to a one-unit introduction to their discipline, new introductory courses. The most extensive and carefully structured revisions occurred in the departments of Biological Sciences, Chem istry and Geology. Only a few departments chose to postpone con sideration of revisions until they could see how their established courses would fit into the new scheme. The foreign language departments found little need to consider revisions in order to relate to the all college changes, except in relation to the short third term. Members of many other departments engaged in serious rethinking in the light of the earlier faculty discussions and revised or reconfirmed their various offerings, so that the students in 1965-1966 saw substantive change as well as changes in schedule.
Some illustrations follow of departmental planning in 1964 1965: The Department of Art planned new sequences and new seminars for alternate years which it expected would strengthen its offerings.
