Nottingham Trent University
The Professional Doctorate in Social Practice has been designed to provide those who work in the broad area of the public, private and independent sector professions an opportunity to study part-time for a doctorate.The programme of study can best be viewed as a single research project that is developed in stages. In structuring the programme of study upon the axis of research it is apparent that as well as empirical forms of inquiry within the field of social science, research may take the form of reading, hermeneutic and philosophical forms of investigation. A number of theoretical frameworks in which research is conducted will be unfolded through the taught elements of the professional doctorate programme of study. Within the context of research, students will be expected to develop their understanding of particular subjects pertinent to their own research projects as an integral element of the enquiry process rather than being taught particular subjects within the programme. Students are expected to gain further knowledge of subjects pertinent to their research through guided reading and discussion.
