REQUIREMENTS AND STANDARDS. ABSTRACT OF A TALK AT ADE'S MLA MEETING ON THE 1965 PROPOSALS ABOUT THE PH.D.
BARBER, C.L.
CHAIRMEN AT THE ASSOCIATION OF DEPARTMENTS OF ENGLISH MEETING DISCUSSED THE 1965 PROPOSALS FOR THE PH.D. AND ATTEMPTED TO CONVEY THAT A PH.D. PROGRAM CAN PREPARE A STUDENT TO BE A TEACHER AND A SCHOLAR WITHOUT INCLUDING REQUIREMENTS APPROPRIATE ONLY FOR THE RELATIVELY SMALL GROUP WHO WILL BE DEVOTED PRIMARILY TO RESEARCH AND WRITING. THE LENGTH AND SCOPE OF THE DISSERTATION WAS A MAJOR AREA OF CONCERN. EXCEPT FOR THE RECOMMENDATION TO REQUIRE ONLY ONE FOREIGN LANGUAGE, ALL OF THE RESOLUTIONS WERE MATTERS OF EMPHASIS. THE ANXIETY OVER REDUCED REQUIREMENTS MAY BE DIMINISHED IF THE IMPORTANT DISTINCTION BETWEEN REQUIREMENTS AND STANDARDS IS REMEMBERED. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE ADE BULLETIN," NUMBER 6, JANUARY 1966, PAGES 2-4. (BN)
