The Doctorate in Education in Canada.
Robertson, Neville L.
This paper deals with the Canadian counterpart of the survey of doctoral programs in professional education in the United States undertaken by Phi Delta Kappa and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (SP 005 011). The information in this report was gathered by visits to four Canadian universities. Three--the Universities of Alberta, British Columbia, and Toronto--were selected because they represented the bulk of doctoral output in professional education in Canada. The fourth university--the University of Manitoba--was chosen because it provided an excellent example of an institution with a new program. The information gathered is discussed under the headings of admission procedures, programs of study, areas of study offered, student support, and housing. The section on programs of study includes the categories of course work, examinations, committees, internships, research dissertations, program length, and foreign language requirements. The report notes that, like American institutions, Canadian universities seem to be phasing out the Ed.D. in favor of the Ph.D. degree and dropping the foreign language requirement. (RT) !
