Overview

The major challenges confronting society are complex and interdisciplinary, and current solutions to today’s and tomorrow’s intractable problems are not working. This complexity requires a different type of professional; one who is equipped to work in a very different and collaborative way to find new solutions. 

The DEdPsych Professional Doctorate in Educational Psychology from University of Dundee will help you to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes required to fulfil this role.

We are bringing together academic experts from across the University to provide you with interdisciplinary learning, teaching and research, thereby enabling you to transcend boundaries and lead applied research that will help you transform lives and tackle complex challenges in unique ways.

Careers

This programme has been designed to enhance your professional development and enable you to progress as a ‘researching professional’ within your own setting and beyond. To achieve this, principles of professional learning are integrated throughout the learning and teaching, including:

  • A strong emphasis on reflective practice throughout the programme.
  • Opportunities to situate learning within contexts that are familiar to you and actively facilitating you to explore interdisciplinary practice in a broader range of disciplines and contexts.
  • An option for workplace ‘consultancy’ experience that combines research skills with practice-based interventions.
  • Teaching and learning that actively includes working as a group to address issues and challenges in interdisciplinary ways, using this as a vehicle for deeper learning and understanding.
  • Opportunities to network locally, nationally and internationally

Whilst you will graduate with a unique range of attributes, fundamentally, this programme aims to create a community of scholars who display ‘doctoral characteristics’ – that is, the qualities and skills associated with doctoral graduates. It is also about preparing you for working in a post-digital world, where 21st century qualities, such as being value-based, reflective and transdisciplinary, are an expectation of professionals.
