Sauwaluck KOOJAROENPRASİT [1]


Due to the opening of ASEAN Community and the integration of regional economies through the free movement of skilled labor in an English-mediated environment, the English program is part of Thai government's strategy for the country to thrive in the ASEAN Community.

The objectives of this study were  to assess the graduate students' satisfaction toward microeconomics subject and their satisfaction toward Master's Degree in Economics (English Program) in the department of economics at Kasetsart university, Thailand. The methodology was a survey by collecting questionnaire and observation. The sample in this study was  all six graduate students taking Microeconomics class. The survey found that most students lack of English proficiency because most of them had Bachelor's degree in Thai program. For  Microeconomics class, students were very satisfied with the subject content, learning material, teaching method,  teaching ability, caring of  lecturer and lecturer-student relationship. Students were satisfied with the grade evaluation by quiz and class participation.

The most impressive thing was all lectures pay attention to teaching. Students was impressed with the method of evaluation final grade by the quiz and class participation.

Students suggested that the program should have a preparation course especially for those who did  not have Bachelor's degree in economics. The reason for enrolling in this program because they expect a good job, want to boost their skills in English.
