Survey To Predict How Students Would Use More Free Electives.
Northeast Missouri State Univ., Kirksville.
This study examined whether students at the Northeast Missouri State University felt the present Liberal Arts and Sciences Core Study requirements allowed enough freedom in choosing classes, and how students would respond to more free electives. Responses of 508 students were obtained to a questionnaire addressing the following areas: (1) how strict would the student describe the structure of the Liberal Arts and Sciences core; (2) out of four additional elective areas, how many would the student choose that would be out of his/her major area; and (3) assuming that the four elective courses cannot be in the student's major, which courses (from a list provided) would they choose to take. Also included are the free written comments submitted by students with the surveys. Overall, the students felt the present core offered too few electives. (GLR)
