dc.description.abstract The purposes of the study were: (1) to determine, for the period from 1968-69 to 1973-74, the number of women who annually apply to, are admitted to, and complete specialist or doctorate degree programs in educational administration at selected midwestern universities, and (2) to determine the types of positions secured by women who completed the specialist or doctorate degree or who left the doctorate degree program prior to completion.Data were obtained through the use of a questionnaire sent to departments of educational administration at twenty-four selected midwestern universities. Sixteen chairpersons reported on specialist degree programs and fourteen reported on doctorate degree programs.Findings reported in the study during the period from 1968-69 to 1973-74 were:1. Totally, at least forty-nine women applied for, at least 264 women were admitted to, and at least forty-eight women completed the specialist degree program. Because application and admission are continuing processes the number of women who were admitted is greater than the number of women who applied.2. Totally, at least 349 women applied for, at least 353 women were admitted to, and at least eighty-four women completed the doctorate degree program.3. The annual total number of women who applied for, were admitted to, and completed either the specialistist or doctorate degree program tended to increase from 1968-69 to 1973-74. The greatest annual number of women at each stage of their degree program was reported in 1973-74.4. Of the positions reported by twenty-eight women who had completed the specialist degree, nine were elementary principals, four were assistant superintendents and four were teachers.5. Of the positions reported by fifty women who had completed the doctorate degree, fourteen were assistant professors, nine were educational consultants and seven were elementary principals.6. One woman was reported to be a faculty member of those departments of educational administration which participated in the study.The following conclusions are based upon the findings of the study:1. The number of females seeking admission to, being admitted to and completing specialist or doctorate degree programs in educational administration at selected midwestern universities is increasing annually.2. Women who have completed the specialist or doctorate degree in educational administration at selected midwestern universities are more likely to find employment as an elementary principal than any other position.3. Women are not proportionately represented as members of faculty of the department of educational administration at selected midwestern universities.4. There is a proportionate underpresentation of women who have received specialist or doctorate degrees in educational administration from selected midwestern universities and who hold higher-level positions in educational administration (superintendent in public schools; dean in a college or university). en_US
