Mean Course Load per Sociology Faculty Member, by Institution Type


Data for AY 2000-01 weighted to adjust for survey non-response based on institution type (Research, Doctoral, Master's, or Baccalaureate) in the Carnegie Classification system; data for AY 2011-12 not weighted because the breakdown of responding institutions generally corresponded with their representation in the Carnegie system.

For AY 2000-01, 508 of 617 responding departments reported course load for faculty; for AY 2011-12, 434 of 645 responding departments reported course load for faculty.

For full-time equivalent sociology faculty.
