Ontario Council on Graduate Studies, Toronto. Advisory Committee on Academic Planning.
This report is one of a series of disciplinary planning studies carried out by the Advisory Committee on Academic Planning of the Council of Ontario Universities. The emphasis of the report is on forward planning, and it is hoped that it will help ensure the more ordered growth and development of graduate studies in Ontario's Universities. This report deals with all aspects of geography except geomorphology. Recommendations include: (1) Field work in geography should be considered an essential part of graduate education and be adequately financed by the universities. (2) The universities increase the rate of completion of doctoral degrees for students in geography. (3) The universities strengthen graduate work in geography, avoid unnecessary duplication and make use of all the resources available in the province. (4) The universities give consideration to introducing a parttime master's program designed especially for the needs of parttime students. Appendices include: the report of the consultants; comments by universities; procedures of planning study and terms of reference; and the membership of discipline groups. (Author/PG)
