Reconsidering Graduate Programs for Students from Developing Countries
Miller, Larry E.
Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension, v10 n2 p83-87 2004
This article examines issues related to graduate programs in agricultural and extension education for students from developing nations who are studying in developed countries. Implications are drawn for developing graduate programs that prepare individuals for their most likely career paths. Such programs may not be congruent given the current graduate programs in universities particularly with the present financial and political pressures on departments and faculty. How can professional associations enter into dialogue to assist in creating more relevant programs of study?
