Social Science Review: Consultants' Report and Recommendations.
Stephens, Lester; And Others
A group of consultants conducted a program review to evaluate the quality of social science programs in the state university system of Florida and made recommendations for improvements within the existing resource base and about program needs should new resources become available. An overview of social sciences in the system is followed by sections on anthropology, history, and sociology. In these sections, an overview of the statewide system is followed by an examination of individual programs in the specific disciplines at each of the state's universities. The program assessment is followed by a section on general and interdisciplinary social science programs at some of the universities and a discussion of a master's degree program in demography at Florida State and a proposed doctorate in applied social science at Florida A & M. An examination is made of the undergraduate and graduate experience and the faculty, and concerns are noted in each area. Recommendations are made for the statewide system and for each individual program. Seven appendices contain information on the consultants, a list of five statewide issues, an academic degree program inventory, and a staff analysis that highlights the central issues in the social sciences in the state university system of Florida and includes recommendations to the state board of regents and each university.
