Course summary

Our Professional Doctorates are aimed at established professionals, from a range of disciplines, with interests in using advanced research skills and knowledge within their practice. The programme is designed to enhance personal career trajectories, as well as develop leadership to influence impactful change. The Professional Doctorate is a professionally focused doctorate, a practice-oriented alternative to a PhD, that will equip professionals to use applied research within different settings. The four-year part-time programme requires completion of taught modules (including leadership, professional identities and advanced research methods) and a doctoral thesis. The University of Dundee has over 40 years of internationally renowned distance learning experience making it an ideal choice for a programme that combines online learning with two campus-based teaching blocks per year. The Professional Doctorate at the University of Dundee is uniquely interdisciplinary. This is achieved through Professional Doctorate researchers from across the University studying together, and the programme modules being taught by interdisciplinary teams of leading academics. This innovative approach develops of an interdisciplinary lens through which Professional Doctorate researchers can understand and address the complexity of transforming lives locally and globally.
