Conference on the Doctor of Arts Degree Program in Chemistry. Proceedings. (Atlanta University, April 23-24, 1976).
Atlanta Univ., GA.
As part of its first-year activities, the Atlanta University Department of Chemistry, which started as Doctor of Arts degree program in September 1975, sponsored a conference on April 23-24, 1976 to which were invited 20 two- and four-year college faculty and administrators. The main objectives were to discuss the need and credibility of the Doctor of Arts degree, to provide information on the degree to the targeted academic community, and to solicit input from knowledgeable persons on the academic preparation appropriate for a person planning to teach in an undergraduate institution. This report is primarily a summary of the two major conference speeches and the discussions and recommendations of three intensive working sessions. Dr. E. Alden Dunham opened the conference with a review of the need for, the content, and the historical development of the degree. Dr. Paul L. Dressel closed with a summary of what a good program should be moving towards, based on his continuing review of existing D. A. programs. (LBH)
