Charges
• Study the feasibility and desirability of restructuring the basic college degree to allow for graduation with a bachelor's degree in three years. Specifically, the study shall include the feasibility of (1) consolidating basic courses into more general subjects of the same field which might be completed in only one semester, (2) revamping curriculum so that the student could initiate study in his major beginning with the second semester of the freshman year, (3) reducing the number of hours needed for a basic degree to 100 hours, (4) adjusting tuition costs for all degrees, basic and graduate, to reflect the shortened degree period; the committee shall also study the effect of a three-year degree program upon specialty degrees, such as law, medicine, engineering and others.

Appointed by Speaker 3/27/1972, pursuant to HSR 138.
