Boyce, B. Ann; Rikard, G. Linda
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v30 n2 p103-115 Apr 2011
The present study of Doctoral PETE programs provided an extensive description of demographic data which included: (a) doctoral program characteristics, (b) faculty, and (c) doctoral graduates. Several data sets from the academic years of 2005-06 and 2008-09 as well as selected summary data from 1996-97 through 2008-09 were used to make comparisons and identify emerging trends. The number of 23 doctoral programs (2008-09) has decreased slightly compared with the 24 programs in 2005-06. Information on faculty and doctoral student ethnicity revealed that doctoral graduates were more diverse than D-PETE faculty. Almost 90% of doctoral graduates enter positions in higher education. There was a slight increase in the number of doctoral students who matriculated over time. Lastly, our graduates including non U.S. graduates are extremely marketable because of the high demand for pedagogists in higher education. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
