Selected Characteristics of Master's Degree in Education Programs. Part 1: Public Institutions Enrolling Fewer than 10,000 Students.
Ciampa, Bartholomew J.
The results of a survey of publicly-supported colleges offering master's degrees to determine the most typical requirements for such degrees are reported. Results indicate that a typical master's degree program is one that: (1) does not require students to fulfill a full-time-student residency requirement; (2) requires that students complete degree requirements within a six-year time frame; (3) requires that students submit a standardized test score, but (4) does not require specific minimum scores for acceptance; (5) will accept nine semester hours of appropriate graduate-level transfer credit, but (6) will not accept graduate credit if it was earned toward another degree. A sample of the questionnaire sent to the institutions, and data on each responding institution are appended. (JD)
