Female Ph.D. completion in the United States: Social and academic interactions with faculty, research productivity, and field of study differences

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

American National data suggests that only 56.6% of doctoral students complete their degrees in 10 years. Female doctoral students have lower completion rates and take longer to complete, and significant gender differences in completion rates in certain fields of study are also reported. The purpose of this study is to seek further understanding of how field of study moderates the predictive relationships between social and academic interactions with faculty, research productivity, and degree completion. A survey conducted with former Ph.D. students will reveal (1) if the predictability of social and academic interactions with faculty and research productivity differs according to fields of study, and (2) if indeed these variables predict female studentsÂ’ degree completion.
