VII Polidcal Science Programs In this chapter 83 research-doctorate programs in political science are assessed. These programs, according to the information supplied by their universities, have accounted for 2,909 doctoral degrees awarded during the FY1976-80 period--approximately 86 percent of the international relations doc- aggregate number of political science and torates earned from U.S. universities in this five-year span. On the average, 50 full-time and part-time students intending to earn doc- torates were enrolled in a program in December 1980, with an average faculty size of 23 members.2 Five programs were initiated since 1970, and no two programs are located in the same university. In addition to the 83 institutions represented in this discipline, another 4 were initially identified as meeting the criteria3 for inclusion in the assessment: American University University of Denver University of Miami--Florida Tufts University Political science programs at these four institutions have not been in- cluded in the evaluations in this discipline, since in each case the study coordinator either indicated that the institution did not at that time have a research-doctorate program in political science or failed to provide the information requested by the committee. Before examining individual program results presented in Table 7.1, data from the NRC's Survey of Earned Doctorates indicate that 2,911 research doctorates in political science and 470 in international rela- tions were awarded by U.S. universities between FY1976 and FY1980. 2See the reported means for measures 03 and 01 in Table 7.2. 3As mentioned in Chapter I, the primary criterion for inclusion was that a university had awarded at least 10 doctorates in political sci- ence during the FY1976-78 period. 109

110 the reader is urged to refer to Chapter II, in which each of the 16 measures used in the assessment is discussed. Summary statistics de- scribing every measure are given in Table 7.2. For 14 of the measures, data are reported for at least 77 of the 83 political science programs. For measure 12, a composite index of the size of a university library, data are available for 71 programs; for measure 14, total university expenditures for research in this discipline, data are available for 58 programs. The programs not evaluated on measures 12 and 14 are typically smaller--in terms of faculty size and graduate student en- rollment--than other political science programs. Were data on these two measures available for all 83 programs, it is likely that their reported means would be appreciably lower (and that some of the corre- lations of these measures with others would be higher). Intercorrelations among the 16 measures (Pearson product-moment co- efficients) are given in Table 7.3. Of particular note are the high positive correlations of the measures of the number of program faculty {01) and the number of recent graduates (02) with the total published articles by program faculty (17) and the reputational survey ratings (08 and 09~. Also of interest are the high positive correlations of university library size (12) with survey results (08 and 09~. Figure 7.1 illustrates the relation between the mean rating of the scholarly quality of faculty (measure 08) and the number of faculty members (mea- sure 01) for each of 83 programs in political science. Figure 7.2 plots the mean rating of program effectiveness (measure 09) against the total number of FY1976-80 program graduates (measure 02~. Although in both figures there is a significant positive correlation between pro- gram size and reputational rating, it is quite apparent that some of the smaller programs received high mean ratings and that some of the larger programs received low mean ratings. Table 7.4 describes the 152 faculty members who participated in the evaluation of political science programs. These individuals consti- tuted 61 percent of those asked to respond to the survey in this dis- cipline and 8 percent of the faculty population in the 83 research- doctorate programs being evaluated.4 A majority of the survey partici- pants had earned their highest degree since 1970, and a majority held the rank of full professor. To assist the reader in interpreting results of the survey evalua- tions, estimated standard errors have been computed for mean ratings of the scholarly quality of faculty in 83 political science programs (and are given in Table 7.11. For each program the mean rating and an associated "confidence intervals of 1.5 standard errors are illustrated in Figure 7.3 (listed in order of highest to lowest mean rating). In comparing two programs, if their confidence intervals do not overlap, one may conclude that there is a significant difference in their mean ratings at a .05 level of significance.S From this figure it is also 4See Table 2.3 in Chapter II. s see pp. 30-32 for a discussion of the interpretation of mean ratings and associated confidence intervals.

111 apparent that one should have somewhat more confidence in the.accuracy of the mean ratings of higher-rated programs than lower-rated programs. This generalization results primarily from the fact that evaluators are not as likely to be familiar with the less prestigious programs, and consequently the mean ratings of these programs are usually based on fewer survey responses.
