Social Science-Related Programs at Berkeley: An Academic Review Using Comparative Student Evaluations.
Koon, Jeff, Comp.
Results of an undergraduate evaluation questionnaire administered to majors in 14 social science-related departments and programs at the University of California, Berkeley, are presented. Data are offered in tabular and textual formats. The document is presented in two major sections. Section I summarizes social science-related programs and offers recommendations regarding program improvement. Recommendations are that programs should offer more career information to students and low-enrollment classes for majors, and stress social applications of disciplinary knowledge. Section II provides evaluative findings in the following areas: advising; faculty and their teaching; curriculum, courses, and content; competition, testing, grading and student workload and performance; student participation in university affairs; overall satisfaction of majors with social science departments; orientation and information of office staffs; and departmental influences on student growth and learning. Information is included on the student population and methods of data collection and analysis. Sample questionnaires and open-ended comments by student majors are appended. (DB)
