Proposal for a Doctoral Degree to Serve Portland Metropolitan Area Community College Staff. Fourth Working Draft.
Hartwig, John E.; And Others
Due to concern for the development of relevant graduate preparation of community college professional personnel, the Portland Metropolitan Area Adult Education Council coordinated the establishment of the Community College Doctoral Task Force Committee to develop a proposal for a Portland-based community college doctoral degree. The doctoral program will allow for part-time study and will emphasize a competency-based approach by including specified outcomes in curriculum, internship experiences, field studies, and a final degree product which can be a job related project or a research project. Local community colleges and adjacent communities will be utilized as learning laboratories. The curriculum components for the degree are noted, and guidelines for admissions policies and faculty selection are proposed. The recommendation is made that internship not be taken in the community college in which the participant is currently employed. Problems related to formulating policy on placement of students in the program and assessing credit for past experiences are related. Recommendations for final degree projects, length of program, examinations, residency requirements, and accreditation are included. (Author/AH)
