The Baccalaureate Programs of the General College: A Survey of Faculty and Graduate Attitudes About Advising, Internship, and Evaluation. Chapter 4. Findings and Discussion.
The student and faculty experiences in, and their attitudes toward, four-year programs in the General Colleges Extended Programs at the University of Minnesota were surveyed. Questionnaires distributed to the population, consisting of General College faculty members, four-year students in residence, and former students who had finished one or the other of the four-year degrees, polled the faculty and graduate attitudes about advising, internship, and evaluation. General findings indicate: (1) some units within the college work with more extended-program students than others; (2) respondents seemed to feel that internships are designed to develop a student's proficiency in his area of concentration; (3) most respondents would like more guidelines in working with students preparing for internships; (4) advisors were helpful during the internship; (5) the majority of graduates worked on jobs related to their areas of concentration as their internship experience; and (6) outstanding characteristics of the program noted were flexibility and the ability to develop individualized programs.
