A Proposal That Oklahoma State University's Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education Be Permitted To Grand the Ph.D.
Adrian, William B.; And Others
A proposal requesting approval to grant the Ph.D. as well as the Ed.D. to doctoral students in Educational Administration and Higher Education (EAHED) is presented. The proposal describes strengths and weaknesses of the present program and documents the program's development from one concentrating primarily on teaching and advising students to one that is also strong in research and publication. The first section addresses concerns expressed in response to a previous Proposal. Departmental improvements are cited in the areas of: (1) scholarly stature of the EAHED faculty; (2) the lack of a strong cognate area in the proposed Ph.D. program; and (3) lack of differences in a dissertation requirements between the Ph.D. and Ed.D. degrees. The need for a Ph.D. option is justified in terms of regional and national trends, student interest, doctoral program enrollment, current doctoral programs in Oklahoma, and employment prospects. The proposed Ph.D. option is then detailed including projected requirements, examples of plans of study, admission requirements, and entrance examinations. Resources available for the Ph.D. option are noted and include existing faculty and facilities and equipment. (DB)
