(p.93) 5 Student Satisfaction with Doctoral Programs:
Doctoral Education in Social Work

Jeane W. Anastas

Oxford University Press

Although the curriculum (e.g., course offerings) was not directly assessed, this chapter covers a range of student satisfaction ratings with their doctoral programs (except the dissertation experience—see Chapter 6). Program satisfaction ratings were generally high, but satisfaction with the supports for faculty-student interactions and with a feeling of belonging in their programs were lower. These items (and some open-ended comments) tapped issues related to a “community of scholars,” which some think is key to doctoral education in all fields. Other comments suggested that access to research and teaching opportunities was uneven, and some students wanted more methodological pluralism, a less “US-centered” and more culturally competent perspective. Problems in student-faculty relationships were also mentioned.
