The Human Costs of Graduate Education, or, The Need to Get Practical.
Watt, Stephen
Academe, v81 n6 p30-35 Nov-Dec 1995
It is argued that graduate students are bearing the costs of the oversupply of doctor recipients making them overworked, underemployed, indebted, anxious, and in crisis. The situation is particularly acute in the humanities, English, and comparative literature. Institutions and their faculty must reassert their commitment to graduate students, through increased moral and financial support. (MSE)
