This course will provide an opportunity for doctoral candidates to pursue their research interests in the area that will form the foundation of their EdD proposal and research portfolio. The specialisation chosen by students will enable them to investigate one or two areas of study that will provide an opportunity to establish a comprehensive literature review related to their professional interests and needs.

Students will pursue in depth study within their specialisation area. It will involve an extensive and critical investigation of the literature relevant to the particular focus of the individual's major study area. This will lead to the submission of a critical literature review paper that will provide a foundation for the confirmation proposal and literature review(s) required for the research portfolio.
