Some comments:

I didn't like the way 2010 and 4010 were presented.  They need to work the bugs out.  The instructors weren't=t ready to work with all the majors.

2010 was just a lot of busy work.  I didn't think 4010 pertained to anything.  I didn't feel I learned much.

2010 and 4010 were just busy work.  Nutrition majors already have a required scientific and technical writing course.  The other majors don=t.

2010 and 4010 justify the department but are not personally applicable.

2010 and 4010 had unclear expectations.

4010 was hard because we didn't  want to be forced to work with people who didn't understand what we do.

4010 could be such a great class if it was used to help students explore job options and get ready to apply and interview.

4010 was terrible. The homework was ridiculous. Too much stress for a required class. The grants part was beneficial but since it=s during the last semester, it should have dealt more with resume building and orienting students toward getting a job.

4010 and 2010. In 4010 the main goal was good. And the information was good. In 2010, the class structure didn't help students see what the main goals were. There were too many negative attitudes in both classes.

4010 was poorly structured. The expectations are too high and there=s no direction. I learned absolutely nothing.

4010. The group work was not good. If we haven=t learned this stuff by now, it=s too late.

4010 was a dead end. The material should be offered sooner; before the senior year.

Did you feel that course work in the department of Family and Consumer Sciences has given you an appreciation for the interdisciplinary nature of the field?  If yes, which courses helped you develop this appreciation?  If no, how might the courses in the department do a better job in this area?

Some Comments:

4010 was good at combining everything.

Yes.  4010 really finalizes this.  It prepares you for the working world.  It=s a good A finish-up@ class.

Doing projects with the other disciplines in 4010 made me see how everything ties together.

4010 was the only one I took but I can definitely see the connection.

Yes.  2010 and 4010 do this well.  Working with the other students was good. 

Actually 2010 did.  I didn't know anything about the history of the field or the struggles for the people who chose this as their profession.  I didn't realize how important this field is.

Yes. 2010 and 4010. They focus on different issues. Over the years I have seen the overlap.

Definitely. 2010 and 4010 expand your thinking and help you understand the broad FCS field. Bernita makes sure it hits home in 2010.

Yes. 2010 and 4010 generally cover this but the students just don=t get it so you need to keep working on that.

Yes, in 4010 all the different areas were represented.

Yes, 4010 could be better though at drawing on others strengths. Research is interdisciplinary.

Only one class: 4010. I realized that I didn't know some of the other dietetics students. My own area. I think that=s important.

I think I have an idea. 2010 and 4010 try to get the disciplines to work together but the disciplines are so different. It's hard to combine them.

Yes, in the 2010 class. It was really good about how everything works together.
