The Intermediate Degree and the Future of the Ph.D.
Fulweiler, Howard W.
ADE Bulletin, n18 p6-13 Sep 1968
The requirements for the doctoral degree in English and the need for college English teachers are discussed. Three possible courses of action are considered--(1) to do nothing, (2) to adopt an intermediate degree, and (3) to transform the Ph.D. into a more suitable degree for contemporary conditions. The value of the intermediate degree is discussed, but emphasis is given to the need for "radically" changing the old Ph.D. degree. (BN)
