Internationally, the Doctor of Education is increasingly the qualification of choice for professionals in the field of education. It is particularly suited to holders of an honours degree with some career experience who wish to pursue doctoral studies primarily oriented towards the development of new knowledge through research and the application of knowledge in professional practice. Applicants with a masters-level degree with a research component are also encouraged to apply.
The core outcome of the Education program from Flinders University is that graduates make a sustained and original contribution to knowledge in education policy, management and practice through a major research dissertation and to develop an advanced understanding of politics and ethics of education policy, research and management. The emphasis is on leadership through knowledge expertise.
It is expected that upon graduation you will be able to undertake a variety of advanced professional roles in education and associated fields and to make an original and sustained contribution to knowledge in educational policy, management and practice.
