The Journal of Educational Sociology


This paper attempts to present the nature of the introductory sociology course as taught in some of the colleges for women that are located west and south of Pennsylvania. The data of this paper were assembled by analyzing the responses received from the colleges for women returning the questionnaires submitted by the Committee authorized to make the study of the introductory sociology course. The questionnaires were sent to 100 colleges in this group and 27 of them replied. The entire questionnaire was not answered in each case, but as a group the replies were adequate and probably representative of this section of the country.
