Abstract:
The article looks at changing academic standards for the women admitted to Salem College. Beginning in 1854 with the first official catalogue, the author traces curriculum changes to 1909 largely through the changing administration. A major trend during this 55 year span was the modernization of the school curriculum by comparison to other similar institutions, a shift from the insular, self-dictated agenda of students in 1854.

Abstract:
Many universities no longer require English majors to take a course on William Shakespeare’s works. Critics claim these universities neglect to foster excellence in students by substituting courses in popular culture, sexuality, and multiculturalism. UNC English professors say this can be a good thing, however, because it promotes diversity and literature relevant to modern time.

Abstract:
The struggle over innovation versus tradition is playing out at Duke University. Duke’s chapter of the National Association of Scholars (NAS) opposes some of the “radical” ideas the English Department is teaching. While some say the argument is over curriculum, others suggest the NAS is more concerned with the salaries as they believe the English Department is taking money away from their programs. Regardless, the fight has made some professors nervous that the attention will make them justify and defend what they do and teach.

Abstract:
North Carolina teachers are frustrated with the state’s outdated energy curriculum. Teachers complain that students are unaware of many energy issues but the current science curriculums and mandatory coursework does not allow for the time to teach energy education. Groups like the UNC Institute for the Environment put on workshops to help, but it is not enough for an issue so critical to our lives.

Included were courses such as oceanography; town hall-style to discuss current events; students exploring the city during free periods.

Abstract:
Greek and Latin, part of classic curriculum, was a source of dread for many students of yesteryear. Therefore, news that Greek and Latin for Vocabulary Building was a popular course for ECU students may seem surprising. An explanation was the appeal of vocabulary words perhaps regarded as profane. Evidence not surprising, but perhaps not considered during course registration, was their role in the development of later born languages like English.

Abstract:
Universities across North Carolina have an eclectic approach when it comes to their degree programs. Recognizing the collective student body’s transformation in the past few decades, universities such as NC State and High Point University are trying to better meet their students’ needs. Examples include NC State’s MBA collaboratories, or half day workshops involving field experts and senior leaders, and High Point’s MBA courses, which are typically twenty minute lecture, two hour and forty minute group discussion and interaction.
