Program Quality

The evaluation of program quality is an ongoing process that relies on personal interviews and formal surveys. The program director meets with every candidate each semester to discuss matriculation and other needs or concerns the student may have regarding the program. Furthermore, the program director uses the formal midpoint evaluation interview to discuss with individual candidates the level of their program satisfaction. Candidates complete formal surveys for each graduate course they complete as well as a formal survey upon completion of the program. These interviews and surveys are monitored by the program director and the School of Graduate Studies and used to improve program quality.
