A Survey of Universities Offering a Doctorate in Educational Administration.
Flanigan, J. L.; And Others
Findings from a survey of universities offering doctorates in educational administration are presented in this paper. Questionnaires mailed to 40 universities in the south central United States elicited 28 responses, a 70 percent response rate. Findings indicate that no clearly defined methods existed to distinguish educational administration faculty positions from those that overlapped with other departments. Although faculty expertise was characterized by diverse specialization, a common core of faculty experience appeared to exist within each educational administration program. A majority of the universities provided some financial assistance to full-time doctoral students in administrator education. Finally, full-time faculty/student and part-time faculty/student ratios were inversely distributed. Eight tables and one figure are included. (LMI)
