Building Bridges and Growing Wings through Doctoral Education: A Literary Meta-Analysis
Rominger, Ryan
International Journal of Higher Education, v7 n3 p171-182 2018
Doctoral education evolves amidst changing international social and educational pressures. New programs emerge, while current programs re-evaluate educational processes. This literary meta-analysis reviewed national and international literature in order to understand what issues are currently debated within higher education. Results indicate three main categories: "Connection with Non-Doctoral Education Groups;" "Re-visioning the Doctoral Education Process;" and "Aligning Dissertation/Capstone Projects with Type of Doctoral Program." Within the categories, eleven themes also emerged. Implications of the study include expanded understanding for new and revised doctoral programs to remain aware of the increasing influence of industry upon education, with industry remaining the main employment location for most doctoral graduates.
