The Doctorate in Education. Volume II, The Institutions.
Moore, Harold E.; And Others
A study was undertaken to analyze the nature of selected conditions and requirements of doctoral programs in the field of education in order to identify areas needing improvement, to reveal distinctive practices which show promise, and to project future doctoral production in the field. Questionnaires were completed by administrators at 81 of the 92 universities and colleges granting doctoral degrees in education during the 2-year period, 1956-1958. Data tabulation included establishment of relationships between the Ed.D. and Ph.D.; private and public institutions; high and low degree producers; and programs administered by colleges of education and graduate colleges. Findings included general information on 65 Ph.D. and 75 Ed.D. programs in the 92 institutions (56 of them publicly and 36 privately controlled); on their recent production of doctoral graduates in education; on admissions requirements; curricular requirements; related conditions (recruitment, finance, housing, dropouts); and on projected production and anticipated changes. Conclusions were drawn regarding such factors as structured versus flexible programs, overspecialization, expected curricular modifications, supply and demand in various areas of subject concentration; age requirements for admissions; need for selective recruitment; financial aid; effect of institutional controls on program length. (Findings, conclusions, and recommendations for further study are included. SP 004 599, SP 004 600, SP 005 602, SP 004 603, and ED 010 188 are related documents.) (JS)
