Tomorrow's college professors are far more prepared to do research than they are to teach undergraduates, according to a study directed by University of Wisconsin-Madison research scientist Chris Golde. The report says that DOCTORAL PROGRAMS typically train students to be research faculty, even though fewer than half of the 40,000 students who earn a doctorate each year actually get jobs at research universities. Most doctoral students are "not prepared for the careers they want or the jobs they actually will get," the report concludes.
