Abstract

This article explores the possibility of a doctoral degree program in computers and writing by distance. We begin by reporting current developments in graduate education by distance with particular attention to the types of students best served by such programs. Next, we report the results of an empirical study we conducted of the job market for computers and writing scholars emerging from graduate programs, assessing the potential of the results to inform program development. We conclude with a proposal for a doctoral degree by distance that unites adult returning graduate students with prospective mentors around the world and that sees directed research as the core of the program.
