6 Program Goal and Objectives The general goal of the Doctor of Philosophy program in Education Studies at the University of New Brunswick is to assist individuals to study at an advanced level, to develop the competence and expertise needed to assume positions of educational leadership, to work collaboratively With colleagues in educational endeavours, and to continue their professional development. The program provides learning opportunities in which the candidate, in supervisory and collegial relationships with one or more faculty members:! will develop a critical and comprehensive understanding of significant trends and major concerns in the field of education and will formulate and express, both orally and in writing, personal and professional positions in relation to how these trends and concerns are manifested in their area of interest;! develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of a specific area or several related areas within the field of education;! develop an understanding of, and ability to use and evaluate research methodologies which typify educational research;! design and present a proposal for an approved research project of significance in the field of education;! complete the proposed research under faculty supervision, then write and orally defend a dissertation; and participate in other activities designed to: develop competencies in disseminating knowledge to others, develop competencies in planning and conducting research and/or development activities, and develop competencies in leadership roles within formal and/or informal educational institutions, agencies or communities. The candidate's program of studies will include activities designed to meet these objectives. All activities will be planned in collaboration with the candidate's supervisor and/or supervisory committee and will be reviewed by the Coordinator of Doctoral Studies of the Faculty of Education. 6

7 Program Requirements Doctoral candidates are expected to attend and complete ED6901 at UNB s Fredericton Campus; and therefore, to be in residence for a minimum of two terms. The term in residence means that the student is expected to be physically present at the University of New Brunswick (Fredericton) for at least three days per week and to be registered as a full-time student. Admitted candidates will participate fully in planning a program of studies to enhance their individual growth and address their professional needs, and to meet the requirements of the degree. Specific activities will be determined through collaboration initially between the Candidate and his or her Supervisor and subsequently with the candidates Supervising Committee. This plan normally will be determined during the first term of the Candidate s enrolment in the program. The plan can be re-negotiated at any time at the request of either the Candidate or the Supervisor. Candidates and supervisors should be familiar with the regulations of the UNB s School of Graduate Studies, the Faculty of Education Guide for Students Writing a Thesis, Report or Dissertation. The candidate will: 1. Participate in ED6911 Doctoral Seminar I & ED 6912 Doctoral Seminar II ED 6911 Doctoral Seminar I (Fall term) This section of the Doctoral Seminar will focus on major educational ideas and their impact on contemporary education. Students will explore major debates in contemporary theories of education and human development, and reflect on the connections between epistemology and various forms of educational research. ED 6912 Doctoral Seminar II (Winter term) This section of the Doctoral Seminar has three interwoven purposes. It is intended to: help students explore the science, craft, and politics of educational research; prepare students to become informed, questioning, self-critical, independent/collaborative researchers; and enhance students sense of belonging and commitment to a larger scholarly and professional research community. 7

8 2. Develop theoretical expertise in a specific content area or several related areas within the field of Education. The candidate, in consultation with his/her supervisor, will outline specific activities in a learning contract through which such expertise will be developed. A copy of the contract will be filed with the Coordinator of Doctoral Studies. The candidate will be expected to engage in regular discussions with the supervisor over the duration of these activities. Relevant activities could include: Completing specific courses Participating in selected workshops, conferences, institutes, etc. Completing independent reading and library/database research. 3. Write a comprehensive examination Each student is required to complete a comprehensive examination comprised of three questions. The purpose of this examination is to demonstrate that the student has the broad substantive and methodological background necessary for completing a dissertation in their field and to establish his or her areas of scholarly expertise. The specific fields for examination will be established by the supervisory committee in consultation with the student and will normally consist of two questions or activities on scholarly fields related to the student s area of study and one on the research methodology to be used in the dissertation. Normally the comprehensive examination will be completed before the candidate formally presents his/her proposal and begins extensive work on the dissertation. For more information, please see website 4. Present the dissertation proposal to the Faculty of Education When the candidates supervisory committee has been established, and the members have agreed, in principle, to accept the dissertation proposal, the candidate will make a formal presentation of the proposal. All faculty members and graduate students will be invited to attend and will have an opportunity to pose questions to the candidate. This will then be presented to the Faculty of Education Graduate Academic Unit for approval. 5. Submit the Proposal for Ethics Approval Once the research proposal has been presented publicly and approved by the Faculty of Education, the candidate will complete the required ethics forms and submit these to the Faculty Ethics Committee. Once approved by the Faculty Ethics Committee, the application will be forwarded to the University Research Ethics Board (REB) for approval. No research involving humans may proceed without approval of the REB. Ethics information and forms may be found at: 6. Complete the proposed research, write and then defend the dissertation These activities will be conducted under the regular supervision of the candidate s supervisor and supervisory committee. The written document and its examination and the oral defense of the dissertation will be managed according to the policies established by the School of Graduate Studies. 8

9 7. Participate in other activities The candidate s program of studies will include additional activities to be planned in collaboration with his/her supervisor and to be set out in a Learning Contract which will be filed with the Associate Dean, Graduate Programs, Faculty of Education. Normally, the candidate will participate in activities roughly equivalent in total time commitment to two graduate term courses (i.e., 10 hours per week over two terms or 260 hours). These activities should relate to at least two of the following three categories: i. The development of professional competence in disseminating knowledge to others (e.g., the teaching role of the professorate).

10 maximum of seven (7) years to complete the degree from the date of first registration. Extensions beyond that date must be negotiated with the candidate s supervisor, the Coordinator of Doctoral Studies and the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. Financial Assistance The Faculty of Education endeavours to provide some financial support for some candidates. Please note that acceptance into the program does not guarantee an offer of financial support. Decisions related to financial support will be made at the time of admissions and will be communicated at that time. As a general principle, financial support will not be provided to candidates who are on a paid leave of absence from their regular work.
