Disciplines and Doctorates - Higher Education Dynamics 16 (Hardback)Sharon Parry (author)
- We can order this
Generic advice in earning a PhD usually falls short of relevance, because of differences in the degree path from one discipline to another. Yet doctoral candidates and their supervisors know this process is governed by protocols and parameters - often implicit - that must be understood and mastered. This book explores these protocols, drawing upon a large-scale study of Australian universities, and also compares doctoral programs in different national systems.

"This book can be counted as making a significant contribution to the scholarly literature on postgraduate education. It is however more than that: individual doctoral students and supervisors as well as University Graduate Schools will be able to benefit from the book's practical advice, and it also promises to be a valuable addition to courses on Teaching and Learning.
A striking feature of the book is the use of quotations from numerous interviews. The author uses these skilfully to illustrate her analysis, bringing added life to an already well written and readable text." Professor Tony Becher
