The External Degree Project.
Syracuse Univ., NY. School of Management.
An external degree is one granted on the basis of academic work undertaken through independent and flexible study and pursued in whole or in part outside of the framework of existing college and university courses. A person's qualifications for an external degree are measured not by a list of accumulated formal courses taken and passed, but by an individual's performance on standardized college level examinations. This document presents an accumulation of data that were collected in the process of creating an external baccalaureate degree program in business administration for a 5-county area in upstate New York. Included are significant materials concerning what is currently being done with external degree programs in New York and other states; testing and evaluation programs such as the College Proficiency Program and the College Level Examination Program; and documents concerned with the necessary ingredients of an external degree program.
