In Response To: Re: PhD in Education...now what? (Sunpower)

sunpower,

as to your statement that university teachers have jobs with BAs I have some interesting statistics for you based on educational qualifications of some 330 university teachers in Japan. these can be divided in to 3 categories:

1. tenured 2. limited term full time contracts 3. part time teachers

BA 1. 3.4% 2. 5.4% 3. 18.5%
MA 1. 57.5% 2 70.7% 3. 67.8%
PhD 1. 39.1% 2. 23.9% 3. 13.7%

Seeing as full time university teachers with a BA make up less than 9% of the total and 5% are full time with limited term contracts, I would say the chances of getting a job with only a BA are pretty remote, indeed.

Fellow University Instructor,

During the spring and summer of 2004, the University
Teachers Union conducted a nationwide survey of employment
conditions at universities throughout Japan. The focus was
on foreign nationals. We hope the results will help
strengthen our case during negotiations with government
ministries to improve conditions for all university
instructors, full and part-time, foreign and Japanese.
Thank you to all those who contributed.
