Abstract: The primary purposes of this study were: (1) to identify the positions home economics education graduates have assumed since graduation and (2) survey the opinions of graduates concerning the adequacy of general and professional preparation for teaching home economics or assuming other positions. A questionnaire was developed and mailed to a random sample of 190 of the 1958-1967 graduates in home economics education at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The graduates were asked to check responses and to list or to supply appropriate information for the seventeen items on the questionnaire. One follow-up attempt was made which resulted in a 73.1 per cent return of the questionnaires. The findings are summarized in relation to general information about graduates, specific information about graduates' opinions concerning general and professional education received in home economics education.
