Why Grad Students Succeed or Fail

Inside Higher Ed has Why Grad Students Succeed or Fail in today's article offerings. The article looks at the recently released book, Three Magic Letters: Getting to Ph.D..

Among the findings:

  • More than 30 percent of all graduate students never feel that they have a faculty mentor.
  • Two-thirds of graduate students enter Ph.D. programs without any debt, suggesting that those concerned about expanding the pipeline to graduate education should pay attention to the affordability of undergraduate education.
  • Students rate their social interaction with faculty members as high in the engineering, sciences, mathematics and education -- and relatively low in the social sciences and humanities.
  • In rating the quality of academic interactions, students in the humanities think highly of their professors while those in the social sciences and math and science are more critical.
  • Significant gaps exist in the experiences of minority and female graduate students -- from admissions to getting teaching or research assistant jobs to publishing research while still in graduate school. Generally, these gaps do not favor minority students.

I wonder if the difference between social interaction with faculty is the existence of "labs" in many of the fields listed under the third bullet point. Or at least the communal nature of the research.

I also wonder what the difference is between "mathematics" and "math" might be that would land the in opposing lists.

I believe you're correct in your speculation. See my article in Inside Higher Ed: "We Need Humanities Labs".
