About

Designed specifically for educational professionals, this qualification is a supervised professional research degree designed to provide you with high quality, advanced research skills to extend your leadership credentials and abilities in education. The Doctor of Education programme is offered at the University of Waikato.

Overview

The Doctor of Education (EdD) at University of Waikato will extend your academic knowledge and expertise so that it can be applied in the various professional settings in which educators work.

Globally, this qualification is a benchmark in terms of researching professional policy and practice. The EdD brings together professionals from a range of contexts and backgrounds. This diversity adds richness to the learning experience and enhances your ability to engage in robust and innovative research.

The EdD has the same status as the PhD, but recognises the professional experience you bring and your desire to apply research directly in your professional contexts.

Graduate outcomes

As a graduate of the EdD you will be able to contribute to the national and international scholarship of your chosen field as an experienced and competent professional practitioner. You will have developed an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the theoretical bases of empirical studies and professional practices in the relevant field of study to a level beyond that normally attained in masters programmes. 

You will apply knowledge and understanding gained in professional settings with the objective of enhancing the quality of teaching, learning and leadership and the well-being of colleagues and students.

You will have produced advanced, original, applied research and will be able to provide leadership at national and international levels in your field of practice. You will confidently present and defend your work in an appropriate academic and professional forum.
