Preparation of College Teachers.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC.
The Doctor of Arts degree has aroused interest both as a means to improve the graduate preparation of college teachers and as an alternative to the research orientation attributed to the Ph.D. degree. The Association of American Colleges therefore appointed a special committee to advise its Commission on Institutional Affairs on the implications of this new advanced degree. Committee findings show that, at present, conditions do not enhance the immediate prospects for the D.A. nor do they encourage a long-range commitment to this alternative; rather the committee believes that there remains enough flexibility within the Ph.D. program to achieve improved preparation for college teaching.
