Doctoral Education: The Mixture Perspective
Sharp, Rick L.
Quest, v55 n1 p82-85 Feb 2003
In the last 30 years, our discipline has become increasingly specialized in the training of PhD students. Development of recent initiatives, such as the Preparing Future Faculty program now in place at many doctorate-granting institutions, has focused attention on the need to broaden the education of PhD students. In addition, recent analyses of the job market for graduating PhD students show that most advertised faculty positions are at institutions where expertise and teaching experience in more than one of our subdisciplines is required. This paper describes a new PhD program at Iowa State University in Health and Human Performance that is designed to offer a broader preparation of PhD students without compromising a quality research experience.
