The EdD is for those who are eager to make substantial and original contributions to the development of educational knowledge in a broad range of educational settings including K-12 schools, colleges, universities and governmental organisations.
Delivered through a blend of online interactions and real-world experiences, the EdD program allows students to continue working full time while pursuing a degree that will distinguish them as organisational leaders. Students will explore how learning occurs in formal and informal workplace settings, examine effective strategies for facilitating organisational learning, and learn to create systems that produce more effective, adaptable and competitive organisations.
The degree meets the need for the highest levels of professional development and training of both educators and those concerned with educational policy and administration. The prime focus is on the interplay between the multi-dimensional practices of education and scholarship.
The degree is designed to engage current practitioners with knowledge, awareness and understanding of the philosophical, organisational, political, social, managerial, interpersonal, and technical dimensions of schools and other educational institutions.
Exploration of the nexus between theory and practice begins with a series of online modules that will develop you capability to perceive critical issues facing educators and policymakers today through the lens of contemporary and historical research and philosophy. This broad foundation will enable you to hone your specific interests towards the conduct of supervised research that will make an original contribution to your field.
Applications for doctoral study are accepted all year round. Students may submit their application by using the Unicaf University online application form and paying the application fee.
