Virtually all students found this course interesting and stimulating. The course was compared favourably to Psyc. Dept. The topics were generally appreciated as relevant both personally and in a wider social sense, but a greater emphasis on NZ content was desired. The extremely wide parameters of the course appealed to some and frustrated others. These students wishing to cover all the entire content had to read well be-yong a reasonable level for a 4 credit course However there was no pressure on students to do all this reading.

Teaching: Half of questionnaires had no improve mental suggestions to make - suggesting a general satisfaction with the methods. The informal and personal approach of the seminars was popular. More condensation of material, maybe previews or printed hand-outs of the general points in forthcoming seminars was suggested. The seminar approach unsatisfactory for those who hadn't covered the reading.
