Description

Several years after earning her second Master's Degree, host, Allison Marschean captured this in her iNotes on 11/6/2013: "I want to get a PhD in something. Just having one interests me...I've thought about it a lot and it came to mind again today. What would I get it in?? Hummm??"Doc Talk: Venturing Beyond a Master's came about as a way for Allison to answer that very question. By talking with people who have "been there and done that", Allison seeks to get a better understanding of what it really takes to venture beyond a Master's and intends to help others, with similar questions, along the way. Allison interviews men and women from all walks of life who fall into one of several categories:1. have earned a doctoral degree2. are in the midst of earning a doctoral degree3. are contemplating earning a doctoral degree4. began a doctoral program and did not complete it for one reason or anotherHer candid conversations with guests cover topics ranging from how they selected a doctoral program, to financing, to fondest memories during those demanding years of study.

This is the qualitative researcher in me---what are the overall lessons learned/commonalities of experiences/differences in experiences?What a terrific question!  Without a doubt I've learned so much from all of our guests!  However when I think of commonalities a few thoughts come to mind immediately:Today, I focus on financing.  We'll get into the other two in another episode.* Financing - How people fund this sort of advanced education* You are Capable - Good enough to be accepted to a program you are good enough AND capable of seeing it through to completion.* Gotta have the Passion - It is VERY important to enjoy what you elect to study.Questions for previous guests or ideas for future guests on the podcast?  Contact me!Showyourdimensions@allisonmarschean.comJoin the Doc Talk Community: The Doctoral Collaborative: Venturing Beyond a Master's | FacebookLike The Doc Talk Page: https://www.facebook.com/beyondamasters

It's Episode 23!Dr. Archuleta is a 2006 Graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and earned his PhD in Government with subfield in Public Policy and American Politics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015.Currently, Dr. Archuleta is a US Army Strategist & Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellow and recently published his book Twenty Years of Service: The Politics of Military Pension Policy and the Long Road to Reform  available on Amazon.Book Summary"Military pension policies are as old as the republic itself and reside at the intersection of American social, economic, and defense policy. But as the nation’s social and economic circumstances underwent dramatic changes over the last half-century, military pension policy remained static, stuck in the personnel and retirement model of the industrial age. This book examines why.Integrating policy history, theory, and practice, Twenty Years of Service provides the most comprehensive examination of US military pension policy in a generation. Brandon J. Archuleta sets the stage with an exploration of the rise, evolution, and transformation of the veterans’ policy subsystem from the American Revolution through World War II. The ensuing theoretical overview explains how the military personnel policy subsystem achieved the autonomy it enjoyed from 1948 to 2018; it also offers a new perspective on autonomous policy subsystems in general, which helps to account for the long-term pension policy stasis. In practical terms, Archuleta explores the role of the successful 2015 Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission as an institutional venue for policy change during the congressional budget battles of the 2010s.Through extensive archival research, illustrative case studies, and field interviews with Pentagon bureaucrats, congressional staffers, veterans’ lobbyists, defense scholars, and journalists, Twenty Years of Service brings the policymaking process to life. Its insights will prove invaluable to policy scholars and defense practitioners alike."Connect with Dr. Archuleta on LinkedInJoin the Doc Talk Community: The Doctoral Collaborative: Venturing Beyond a Master's | FacebookLike The Doc Talk Page: https://www.facebook.com/beyondamasters
