Glimmer of hope for getting ourselves a doctoral program

When I interviewed for this job 8 years ago, people estimated that we would have a Ph.D. program in our department in about five years.

Still just a Master’s program here.

This article in the Rio Grande Guardian is actually one of the first things to give me hope in a while, because it shows that people are noticing the situation here. The article notes that the Texas panhandle is half the size of South Texas, but one university alone in the panhandle (Texas Tech) has twice as many doctoral and professional programs as all of South Texas.
