Administrative history

The Educational Foundations Centre (EFC) was established in 1965 as one of the original centres of the Faculty of Education. The EFC originally contained separate departments for Behaviourial Science Foundations, Social and Philosophical Foundations, and Professional Foundations. In 1970, Communicaton Studies moved from the Centre for Communications and the Arts (which left the Faculty of Education) to the EFC, while Professional Foundations separated to become its own centre. The EFC was abolished along with the remaining centres when the faculty re-organized again in 1972. In that year, Behavioural Science Foundations and Communication Studies merged and moved to the newly established Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies, while the faculty members and curriculum of Social and Philosophical Foundations joined the new unified structure of the Faculty of Education as a whole.
