Course Description

The Doctorate in Professional Studies by Public Works (DProf PW). The MDProf PW began in 2007 in response to the needs of high level professionals to reflect on and consolidate their achievements, and obtain a doctoral level qualification. Candidates report gaining a deeper understanding of their practice through undertaking the programme. The standard of work for the Doctorate in Professional Studies by Public works is the same as for the DProf. For the DProf PW the candidate is required to show that their existing public works, together with a statement that contextualises their works, meet that standard. The Institute for Work Based Learning at Middlesex University has developed a unique pan-institutional doctoral framework in which a wide range of pathways for people from all professional backgrounds can be followed. The Doctorate in Professional Studies (DProf), and the intermediate Masters in Professional Studies (MProf), allows individuals and groups from the private, public and voluntary sectors to negotiate high level customised programmes which focus on their professional and organisational needs. The Doctorate in Professional Studies by Public Works (DProf PW) and intermediate Masters (MProf PW) enable established professionals with substantial evidence of already having contributed significantly to organisational andor professional development to draw together a focussed account of their achievements. The generic MDProf is rapidly expanding and already has over 100 alumni. Candidates are attracted to the programme because it is a doctoral qualification that is related to the actual work activities and situations of employees and professionals. This demand has been stimulated by major changes in organisational structures and employment patterns, technological and scientific advances, and intensifying economic competition. The transdisciplinary DProf is based on generic assessment criteria rather than a particular subject or body of knowledge that is held in a single discipline. The abilities of DProf Candidates are judged upon broad, generic criteria that are directly related to practical, real world outcomes
