IX Sociology Programs In this chapter 92 research-doctorate programs in sociology are as- sessed. These programs, according to the information supplied by their universities, have accounted for 3,061 doctoral degrees awarded during the FY1976-80 period--approximately 93 percent of the aggregate number of sociology doctorates earned from U.S. universities in this five-year span. On the average, 49 full-t~me and part-time students intending on one averag e ~ ~ ~ r u''-~ ~ cur to earn doctorates were enrolled in a program in December 1980, with an average faculty size of 21 members.2 Thirteen programs were initiated since 1970, and no two programs are located in the same university. In addition to the 92 institutions represented in this discipline, another 3 were initially identified as meeting the criteria3 for inclusion in the assessment: University of California--San Francisco Tufts University U.S. International University The U.S. sessment in any . . . . International University chose not to participate in the as- discipline. Sociology programs at the other two in- stitutions have not been included in the evaluations in this disci- pline, since in each case the study coordinator either indicated that the institution did not at that time have a research-doctorate program in sociology or failed to provide the information requested by the committee. Before examining individual program results presented in Table 9.1, 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- ~Data from the NRC's Survey of Earned Doctorates indicate that 3,303 research doctorates in sociology were awarded by U.S. universities between FY1976 and FY1980. 2See the reported means for measures 03 and 01 in Table 9.2. 3As mentioned in Chapter I, the primary criterion for inclusion was that a university had awarded at least 9 doctorates in sociology dur- ing the FY1976-78 period. 155

For measure 12, a composite index of the size of a university library, data are available for 73 programs; for measure 14, the total university expenditures for research in this discipline, data are available for 66 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 sociology programs. Were data on these two mea- sures available for all 92 programs, it is likely that their reported means would be appreciably lower (and that some of the correlations of these measures with others would be higher). Intercorrelations among the 16 measures (Pearson product-moment coefficients) are given in Table 9.3. Of particular note are the high positive correlations of the reputational survey ratings (08 and 09) with the measures of program size (01, 02, and 03), university library size (12), and the total number of recently published articles by pro- gram faculty (17~. Figure 9.1 illustrates the relation between the mean rating of the scholarly quality of faculty (measure 08) and the number of faculty members {measure 01) for each of 92 programs in sociology. Figure 9.2 plots the mean rating of program effectiveness (measure 09) against the total number of FY1976-80 program graduates (measure 021. Although in both figures there is a significant positive correlation between program 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 9.4 describes the 181 faculty members who participated in the evaluation of sociology programs. These individuals constituted 66 percent of those asked to respond to the survey in this discipline and 9 percent of the faculty population in the 92 research-doctorate pro- grams being evaluated.4 A majority of the survey participants had earned their highest degree prior to 1970, and almost half held the rank of full professor. One exception should be noted with regard to the survey evaluations in this discipline. It has been called to the attention of the committee that the faculty list (used in the survey) for the Department of Sociology at the University of Texas (Austin) was missing the names of five members. The committee has decided to report the survey results for this program, but with the caution that the reputational ratings may have been influenced by the omission of these names. 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 92 sociology programs {and are given in Table 9.1~. For each program the mean rating and an associ- ated "confidence interval" of 1.5 standard errors are illustrated in Figure 9.3 (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 4 See Table 2.3 in Chapter II.

157 ratings at a .05 level of significance.S From this figure it is also 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. 5See pp. 30-32 for a discussion of the interpretation of mean ratings and associated confidence intervals. .
