Doctoral Degree Programs Offered by China's Colleges and Universities.
Barendsen, Robert D.
China colleges and universities that grant doctoral programs and the specialized fields offered are specified. For each of the 111 institutions, information is provided on the type of institution, location, alternative English versions of the school's name, and the doctoral degree programs offered. A brief narrative overview on the institutions and degrees is also presented. It is noted that the geographical distribution of the institutions is uneven: 10 of mainland China's 29 provinces, autonomous regions, and special municipalities do not have doctoral degree-granting institutions, and 40 of the 111 doctoral institutions are clustered in three metropolitan areas. Information is included on "key" institutions, or those that are eligible for preferential funding, staff selection, and student recruitment. The number of different fields of specialization in which doctoral programs are offered is about 260. The nature of the specializations in which the degree is offered is concentrated most heavily in technological and applied science fields, with a sizable number also in the pure physical and natural sciences. Only about 10% of the doctoral specializations are in the social sciences, and a slightly smaller number are in the the areas of the arts and humanities. (SW)
