A master’s degree in education may be offered by Washburn within the next year, Dr. William McKeefery, W.U. vice president, said. 

The education department has already drafted a program for such a degree and the addition may become a reality by spring.

At the present time the only advanced degree is offered in the School of Law.

Addition of the advanced degree should boost the enrollment in the summer school, and it would offer to Topeka public school teachers an opportunity to work toward advancement without leaving home.

At the present time most degrees awarded are bachelor of arts degrees. 100 degrees of this kind were awarded in 1958.
