Along with other curricular changes in the postsecondary schools of today has come an added emphasis upon business and business subjects. Elaborating on this specific statement concerning business subjects, Veon notes that it is the responsibility of the school and of the instructors to provide the student with the high quality vocational education that will enable that student to have a successful life by securing a good initial job and adapting himself to that vocation.1
Accordingly, in the past few years Weber State College has developed one-year and two-year programs in Secretarial Science designed to meet the specific vocational needs of students seeking employment in secretarial work. These programs circumvent the normal general education courses typically required for degree programs and lead instead to one-year Certificates of Proficiency or a two-year Certificate of Completion. Specific requirements for completion of these programs are outlined in Appendix A. Although these programs have been carefully designed to meet the minimum vocational requirements for successful secretaries very few students completed these programs.
