Status of the Doctor of Arts and Sixth-Year Degree and Non-Degree Programs for Preparing Junior College and College Teachers.
Koenker, Robert H.
The purpose of this study was to determine which colleges and universities were offering, planning to offer, or considering the possibility of offering the Doctor of Arts degree and/or sixth-year degree programs especially designed to prepare junior college and college teachers. Questionnaires were sent in February 1970 to the graduate deans of the 290 member institutions of the Council of Graduate Schools and to 16 graduate deans of non-member institutions offering programs beyond the Master's degree. Two hundred sixty-seven responded. Though some factors seem to have a negative effect on the development of these programs, the results of the questionnaires indicate that the Doctor of Arts Degree has received wide acceptance in the last few years. Three institutions now offer the Doctor of Arts degree, 4 are planning to institute it in 1970, 10 in 1971, 6 in 1972, another 7 plan to offer it with no date given, and 46 are studying the possibility of offering it. Twenty-seven institutions offer a sixth-year degree program, 10 offer a sixth-year non-degree program, and 17 institutions are planning to offer a sixth-year degree or non-degree program. (AF)
