A Departmental Perspective on APA Goals and Outcomes for Undergraduate Psychology Programs.
Schwartz, Beth M.; Goff, Dennis M.
Approximately every ten years, all academic departments at Randolph-Macon Womans College (RMWC) are required to conduct a departmental review. This review entails documenting and reflecting upon a number of factors including curriculum, staffing, workload, student success, enrollment, assessment, and facilities with the input of off campus evaluators to provide a needed perspective. The goal is to reflect upon the achievements and goals of the department and in turn strengthen the academic program. This paper discusses how this type of review allowed the psychology department to compare the structure of the RMWC curriculum to the APA goals and outcomes set forth for undergraduate psychology programs.
