Major Field Report: High-Impact Practices

Seniors

Decades of research hold that student experiences and outcomes vary more within institutions than between institutions. Thus, NSSE urges institutions to "look within" key subpopulations such as major. The Major Field Report informs department-level improvements in teaching and learning with results that are useful for deans, department chairs, faculty, and others. Institutions had the option to customize how majors were grouped, using up to ten categories. For more details on the Major Field Report, click here.
