Preparation of Undergraduate and Community College Teachers.
McCarthy, Joseph I.
In this memo the graduate faculty of the University of Washington records the approval by the Graduate School of the policy that the Doctor of Arts (D.A.) degree may be offered by the faculty in specifically authorized graduate units at the university and sets forth the general characteristics expected in graduate programs which may be offered leading to this degree. The D.A. is expected to be offered primarily in the disciplines of the arts, humanities, letters and sciences where programs oriented toward the practice of college teaching are needed, and in rigor it is to equal the Ph.D., the Ed.D. and other advanced degrees. A program leading to the D.A. degree is expected to contain the following elements: (1) broad knowledge in the main field chosen, and comprehensive background of the field and its interconnections with related areas; (2) development of the capacity and habit of reading, understanding, and interpreting results of new research and pedagogical developments, and of the ability to apply this; (3) achievement of adequate knowledge of the philosophy of education and the psychology of learning; (4) an independent investigation of an area in the subject matter field leading to a dissertation; and (5) a college teaching internship.
