Comparisons of the Perceived Environments of Graduate Departments of Arts and Humanities, Biological Science, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences and Education.
Baird, Leonard L.
The perceived environments of departments in five graduate fields were studied in a longitudinal study of a large sample of students. Students' perceptions of the administrative, peer, academic, and general environments of the departments were examined by an extensive questionnaire. The "environments" of the fields differed in plausible ways, each field presenting a distinctive pattern. In particular, education was described as relaxed but unstimulating. The results suggest that the environments of the fields create the expectations and pressures that help shape student behavior and that affect their academic and personal well-being. (Author)
