Summary

Since its introduction in 1967, the Doctor of Arts degree has been a center of controversy. Billed as an alternative to highly specialized, research-oriented PhD programs, the DA is specifically designed to prepare persons for undergraduate college teaching. In order to determine the receptivity to such a degree, a questionnaire was distributed in December 1971 to a representative sample of potential employers in Washington colleges and universities. This report contains the results of the survey. It is a summary of attitudes of relevant departmental chairmen on a series of questions concerning their views of the DA degree. It is evident that, for the most part, chairmen are receptive to the proposed DA degree, but this receptivity is not consistent across all segments of Washington higher education. (Author/HS)
