Course content

The Doctorate in Education is a unique opportunity for experienced professionals to gain a practice-focused higher degree. The EdD engages with education in its broadest sense across the age range from early years to adulthood. It is relevant across all educational settings and students come from a range of backgrounds beyond traditional education, such as the charity sector, prison and social work.

Participants with an interest inequality, diversity, sustainability and inclusion (themes within the realm of social justice) will gain much from working with a diverse group of peers and tutors from a range of backgrounds. Everyone associated with the EdD shares a commitment to the notion of social justice, which underpins our work in education and broader research at LSBU. The close association between the University Research Centres, LSBU's Doctoral Academy and masters programmes provides opportunities to work with like-minded research-active peers within a lively and supportive learning community.
