Doctorate of Educational


Education is a science that has developed rapidly in recent years. The total curriculum in education has taken a major role in modern educational sciences, where administration, curricula, teaching methods and educational guidance are complementary with each other. Today, the most developed countries in the world are the countries that have an advanced educational system in their educational institutions, and they train their cadres in the latest curricula and the most advanced theories and techniques.

To meet all these needs, we have designed the PhD in Education program to meet all the demands and needs of the development of education in the modern world. The doctoral program in education focuses on the study of educational issues of concern to educational institutions in different countries and from different angles. Therefore, the program areas are broad as it includes educational curricula, teaching methods, classroom management, educational administration, educational planning, educational psychology and special education.

This degree meets the need for the highest levels of professional development and training of both educators and those concerned with educational policy and administration. The prime focus is on the interplay between the multi-dimensional practices of education and scholarship.

The degree is designed to engage current practitioners with knowledge, awareness and understanding of the philosophical, organizational, political, social, managerial, interpersonal, and technical dimensions of schools and other educational institutions.
