Doctoral Program Characteristics

With input from its Graduate Education Advisory Committee (GEAC), the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) has adopted a policy requiring all public Texas universities to publish certain statistics describing their doctoral programs. The Graduate Education Advisory Committee also recommended to the THECB that institutions collect doctoral program data related to these 18 characteristics and use them for institutional self-assessment and to assist prospective students in choosing doctoral programs. In November, 2007, the Coordinating Board adopted these recommendations and asked public Texas institutions to collect and publish on their websites individual program data associated with these measures for each of their doctoral programs by December 2009. These reports will be updated yearly. The links below will access the reports for each of The University of Texas-Pan American’s doctoral programs, except the Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Counseling, which is too new to be included in this year’s report. If you have questions about the data in the reports, please contact Dr. Dave Jackson, Vice Provost for Graduate Studies, Academic Centers & Continuing Education, at dojackson@utpa.edu
