This research note presents data regarding differences in student responses to value statements and shows that the pattern of "change" differs depending on the major and the number of courses taken in that major. Sociology and business majors are compared since they typically differ along a conservative-liberal social values continuum. This allows a cohort design that can rule out maturation within the general culture (Telford and Plant, 1968) and the liberalizing effects of the general college environment (Jacob, 1957) as a source of change.
