An Interim Report of the Ad Hoc Subcommittee on the External Degree: Developing External Degree Program(s) in the University System of Georgia. Second Working Draft.
University System of Georgia, Atlanta.
Dimensions and perspectives of the external degree as a potential thrust for the University System of Georgia, are explored in this report. Emphasis is placed on a definition of terms, significant developments in the external degree movement, the scope of educational decisionmaking required in planning external degree programs, forces and influences affecting the external degree, and salient opportunities for improvement. Recommendations suggest: (1) The University System should mount a serious and consistent study and planning effort leading to the development and offering of one or more external degree programs. (2) Strategies and structures for planning and implementing programs must be carefully developed to synthesize interests and to reconcile divergent viewpoints. (3) A market survey and a review of the experience with programs should be undertaken. (4) The program should be designed to maintain and enhance quality standards. (5) Planning and implementation of the program should utilize input from a wide variety of resource people and specialists. (MJM)
