Overview

The Public Administration  Doctorate programme from the University of Huddersfield encourages the application of sound theory and rigorous research to complex issues in business and management; the foundation for which is the development and application of knowledge and theory.

A taught programme of study is carried out in the first two years and provides preparatory training for the doctoral research phase, culminating in the submission of a research thesis. It contains four taught modules which address major aspects of research methods knowledge in a classroom-based setting. You may only progress to the research phase when they have successfully completed the taught element.

Key facts:

  • The doctoral research phase constitutes the substantive component of the DBA/DPA programme. You are required to conduct an individual supervised research project which is written up in the form of a doctoral thesis.
  •  You will have critically investigated and evaluated an approved topic, resulting in an independent and original contribution to knowledge in a relevant professional discipline, usually with a practical application. Applying the skills learnt in the taught element of the programme, you’ll be able to demonstrate an understanding of research methods appropriate to the chosen field. In addition, you are required to submit a personal reflection and impact statement to demonstrate learning over the period of study. 
  • This should capture professional and personal reflections on your experience, and how these relate to your professional and research curiosity, critical thinking, creativity and innovation in your working environments.
  • The thesis should be a substantial submission of 50,000 words and should demonstrate publishing potential in the field of managerial/public administration/ leadership in business or other organisations. It is an individual document that synthesizes the professional experience of the candidate, the original applied research undertaken, the academic insights achieved and the potential for contributing to practice and to the professional development of the author. 
  • The thesis should normally include: a review of the literature; research questions; conceptual framework; methodology; results; discussion on key findings and their contribution to academic and managerial/public administration/leadership practice; conclusion. The thesis will not be assessed unless it is accompanied by the PRIS.
