A FIRST REPORT ON GRADUATE PROGRAMS IN ENGLISH.
NELSON, BONNIE E., ED.
PROMPTED BY THE PUBLICATION OF THE "RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING THE PH.D. IN ENGLISH" IN "PMLA" (SEPTEMBER 1967), THE ASSOCIATION OF DEPARTMENTS OF ENGLISH AND ENGLISH ERIC INVITED THE CHAIRMEN OF DEPARTMENTS OFFERING GRADUATE WORK IN ENGLISH TO DESCRIBE THEIR CURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS, SPECIAL PROGRAMS WHICH MIGHT BE OF INTEREST TO THE CHAIRMEN, AND CHANGES IN GRADUATE DEGREE REQUIREMENTS WHICH HAVE RECENTLY TAKEN PLACE OR WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE FALL 1968. BECAUSE MANY OF THE 67 RESPONDING CHAIRMEN COMMENTED AT LENGTH ON NEW PRACTICES AND OFTEN INCLUDED CURRICULUM AND COMMITTEE REPORTS AS WELL AS DEPARTMENTAL BROCHURES WITH PERSONAL LETTERS, THIS INITIAL SURVEY OF 39 INSTITUTIONS OFFERING THE PH.D. AND 28 OFFERING THE M.A. ONLY PROVIDES CURRENT INFORMATION ABOUT THE DIRECTION OF GRADUATE TRAINING IN ENGLISH. MOST OF THE REPORT DESCRIBES RECENT INNOVATIONS OR CHANGES IN EXISTING DOCTORAL PROGRAMS WHICH REFLECT THE DISCUSSIONS OF THE PH.D. HELD IN 1966 AND 1967. CHAPTERS ON CURRENT MASTERS PROGRAMS, CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAMS AND COURSES, TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (TESL), AND CATEGORICAL DEFERMENT ARE INCLUDED. OVER HALF OF THE REPORT CONSISTS OF APPENDIXES DESCRIBING THE MASTERS, DOCTORAL, CREATIVE WRITING, AND TESL PROGRAMS AT VARIOUS UNIVERSITIES. A LIST OF COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES PARTICIPATING IN THE STUDY IS PROVIDED. SEE TE 500 080 FOR A COMPANION DOCUMENT. (BN)
