Topics for Current and Future Consideration

What lies ahead for nontraditional doctorate programs? What issues should concern administrators, faculty, and scholars? Faculty and administrators raised concerns that the marketplace demand for "nontraditional doctoral programs" would pollute the academic purity and sanctity of traditional programs. The authors provide some considerations for those interested in the ongoing debate in the academy about the legitimacy, nature, and metrics of nontraditional doctorates. They present topics that emerge from events, discussions, and developments on their campus. These topics are offered for consideration as the academy moves forward in developing new degrees and anticipating future ones.
