A Reconsideration of the Ph.D.
Nichols, Roy F.
The Graduate Journal, v7 n2 p325-35 Spring 1967
One of the major problems in doctoral education, the shortage of Ph.D. holders, is discussed. A brief history of the German influence on graduate schools in the United States is given to suggest the reasons why the traditional Ph.D. is not designed for present needs. Suggestions are given for a more effective Ph.D. curriculum which will meet the need for college teachers as well as research scholars. (BN)
