Summary

To determine what is meant by and what was desired in a graduate program of higher education, 275 questionnaires were sent to faculty members teaching courses in higher education at different types of institutions. Questions involved: (1) the areas of study that could be included in the field of higher education; (2) program elements that were or were not considered essential to the field; (3) emphasis of study in terms of two or four year colleges or both; (4) degree preference in the doctoral program; (5) the kind of professions for which persons could be prepared in a higher education program; (6) the discipline or area in which the program should be centered; (7) the sources that should be most influential in planning the development of higher education; (8) and preferred degree level of a higher education program; (9) the nature of a doctoral dissertation; (10) attitudes concerning whether there is a specific body of knowledge identified with higher education as a field of study; and (11) preference for a "scholarly" or "training" approach in the doctoral program. This report summarizes the findings and analyses the opinions expressed in 141 replies. The questionnaire, a list of the respondents, and tables are included. (AF)
