Summary

This report examines the literature on the graduate student seeking the Ph.D. in the arts and sciences, the claims made about graduate student status, and research supporting or negating such claims. Major findings show that: (1) graduate students are concentrated in prestigious universities and most graduate students receive their undergraduate training at universities rather than colleges; (2) special groups such as teaching assistants, part-time students, and women generally have unique problems that are essentially ignored; (3) students are disturbed by many of the components of graduate education, specifically language examination requirements; (4) general requirements are a source of complaint; (5) the dissertation and research phases of doctoral study are seemingly lacking in the proper guidance needed for a student to conduct his own research in his own fashion without being threatened; (6) doctoral study is excessively long; (7) students in the sciences seem more pleased with their programs than those in the arts or social sciences because more adequate funding is available for science programs; and (8) although graduate students are not nearly as destitute as many imagine, financial aid should be more equally distributed among the disciplines.
