Project Description

Deciding Factors in Selecting a PhD Program

Project Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate currently enrolled doctoral students regarding their choices in attending a particular institution. The first survey will ascertain whether doctoral granting institutions are at the highest productive capacity. The first survey should show whether programs are at capacity for students. If programs are at capacity, the paucity of doctoral graduations will remain constant and the lack of doctoral faculty will continue to decline. If the programs are not at capacity the survey will indicate the need for more attention to increasing enrollment. The second survey will consist of 48 factors response set sent out to the doctoral students in the field of Speech-Language Pathology, Linguistics, and Psychology. The results of the three different professions will be compared. The 48 factors should show which factors are more important in deciding to attend a doctoral program and which factors are less important.
