Cooperative Doctoral Programs Between Universities and Senior Colleges: Georgia's Solution for Conserving Scarce Resources.
Johnson, Clifford I.; And Others
Cooperative doctor of philosophy degree programs in educational administration and supervision have been developed between the College of Education at Georgia State University and three of the System's 14 senior colleges. Cooperating senior colleges are located in three different geographical sections of the state: Valdosta State College; Columbus College; and Augusta College. Cooperative doctoral programs are developed through the joint efforts of the administration and faculty at the university and senior college levels. A needs assessment is conducted at the senior college prior to a formal proposal. This document details the quality controls and the responsibilities of each cooperating university and senior institution. Included are specifics regarding needs assessment, admission procedures, advisory committees, faculty appointments, library resources, and funding necessary to successful implementation of the program. The senior college is responsible for providing course work in the cognate area. All departments in the senior colleges are asked to select from the courses submitted those courses deemed appropriate for student programs. The core area includes courses common to all doctoral students in education, including research, statistics, design, and computer science. A description is presented of residency requirements, financial resources and expenditures, and academic evaluation. (JD)
