Cal State Campuses Will Offer Doctorates

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation Thursday authorizing California State University campuses to offer doctor of education, or Ed.D., degrees. The law, which gives Cal State campuses their first opportunity to grant doctorates since the university system was formed nearly 50 years ago, is intended to provide training for administrators of the state’s public elementary and secondary schools and community colleges.

Previously, under the state’s master plan for higher education, Cal State schools could offer only bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
