Status of the Doctor of Arts Degree Programs for Preparing Junior College and College Teachers.
Koenker, Robert H.
In order to update the March 1970 study of the status of the Doctor of Arts (D.A.) degree for preparing junior college and college teachers, questionnaires were sent to the graduate deans of the 288 member institutions of the Council of Graduate Schools in the United States on September 15, 1971. Questionnaires were also sent to the graduate deans of 12 nonmember institutions known or thought to be offering programs beyond the master's degree. This study reveals that 15 institutions are offering the D.A. degree, 11 are definitely planning to offer it, and 60 institutions are considering the possibility of offering it. The survey also shows that faculty and student interest in the D.A. degree is much greater in those institutions that currently offer the D.A. degree, are definitely planning to offer it, or are considering the possibility, than those which are not. Finally the survey shows that 50 institutions offer either doctoral programs similar to the D.A. degree or have modified existing doctoral programs so that they are similar to the D.A. degree program.
