The Professional Doctorate in Social Practice has been designed to provide those who work in the broad area of the public, private and independent sector professions an opportunity to study part-time for a doctorate.
This professional doctorate is a part-time modular programme. The programme of study can best be viewed as a single research project that is developed in stages.
These fields of study have been drawn together by commonalties in:
the philosophy of public and social professions
the particular view of the nature of professional doctorates and professional development
the structure for carrying out research and completing the doctorate
the way in which the professional doctorate is assessed.
