The following 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 the implementation of the recommendations will help to ensure more ordered growth and development of graduate studies in Ontario's universities. Recommendations include: (1) Political Science departments consider the advantages of offering new types of Ph.D. programs. (2) The employment patterns and needs of provincial and local governments be more fully studied and exploited than at present. (3) More adequate and regularized counselling be provided to graduate students in connection with career opportunities. (4) No new Ph.D. programs be instituted in the province during the next five years and more rigid admission procedures and selectivity prior to and during the first year of graduate work be encouraged. Appendixes include: report of the consultants, response of the discipline group, comments by universities, membership of discipline group, and an approach to estimating faculty requirements.
