The Doctorate in Chemistry. Carnegie Essays on the Doctorate: Chemistry.
The Carnegie Foundation commissioned a collection of essays as part of the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate (CID). Essays and essayists represent six disciplines that are part of the CID: chemistry, education, English, history, mathematics, and neuroscience. Intended to engender conversation about the conceptual foundation of doctoral education, the essays are intended as a starting point and not the last word in disciplinary discussions. This essay reviews current practice in chemistry doctoral education and offers recommendations for structural and procedural changes in programs. Discussed in detail are the development of breadth of knowledge, depth of knowledge, and professional skills. (EV)
