Curriculum Mapping and Undergraduate Program Assessment 

In conjunction with UCSD's Education Research and Assessment Hub, I have been hired as a graduate research assistant to help the Department of Sociology assess their undergraduate program. 


This Fall 2019 I am conducting interviews and analyzing survey data and curriculum maps to identify and address academic gaps, redundancies, and misalignments in the Sociology program. Our goals are to propose and get approval for strategies to integrate curriculum and assessment to improve the overall undergraduate program. My report will include proposals for both immediate and long-term changes/initiatives.
