EdD Doctoral & Project Studies
A doctoral research or project study is a formal manuscript written to address a gap in educational practice, thus resolving a local problem. Walden research studies consist of five sections (Section 1: Introduction, Section 2: Literature Review, Section 3: Methodology, Section 4: Results, Section 5: Summary and Conclusions). Walden project studies consist of four sections (Section 1: Description of the Local Problem, Section 2: Methodology, Section 3: The Project, Section 4: Reflection and Conclusions).
Access samples of published dissertations through the Walden library website under Databases. You can also access the Office of Student Research Administration for additional information on the doctoral study process, including the doctoral study rubrics, the EdD Project Guide, and the Doctoral Study Guidebook. For proposal, dissertation, thesis, or doctoral study questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To prepare for the form and style review, use the following checklist, which is the same checklist we use when we review capstone manuscripts and the checklist we return to the student and committee along with their completed review.
