Graduate Programs in the Family: Student Perspectives.
Orthner, Dennis, Ed.; Sprenkle, Douglas, Ed.
This booklet attempts to provide prospective graduate students with information written by students already pursuing degrees in the universities that offer graduate study of the family. In addition to general descriptions of programs, the booklet discusses such issues as faculty availability and concern for graduate students, the general orientation of the programs (research, teaching, counseling, etc.), the opportunity for students to shape their own programs, department morale, availability of fellowship and assistantships and the service they involve, the marketability of the degree, faculty assistance in placement, the type of placement, and the advantages and disadvantages of the program. The booklet also contains lists of faculty and their interests and department addresses. (Author/LAA)
