Doctoral Programs Decide That Smaller Is Better.
Magner, Denise K.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n25 pA12-A13 Feb 26 1999
Increasingly, doctoral programs are cutting enrollments to allow them to offer more financial support to doctoral students, often guaranteeing five-year stipends. The combination of fewer applicants and fewer places in doctoral programs has created competition for the best graduate students. Course offerings have also been reduced, making independent study more popular. (MSE)
