The Joint PhD in Educational Studies is offered by Brock University, Lakehead University, and the University of Windsor.
The designation "home university" applies to your home university, and your dissertation supervisor. You have the right to take courses and seminars or to use the academic facilities at any of the participating universities.
Through the three fields of study, Cognition and Learning, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, and Social/Cultural/Political Contexts of Education, the Joint PhD in Educational Studies Program aims to promote scholarly inquiry and the production of new knowledge within the context of a research culture.
Program Highlights Include:
NOTE: Students in this program are expected to complete all requirements within a minimum of nine terms (3 years) up to a maximum of eighteen terms (6 years) of continuous full-time registration. Candidates must meet a minimum residency of four terms, two of which must be consecutive.
Applicants for admission must be graduates of a recognized university and show evidence of scholarly achievement. Except where otherwise stated in the Admission Requirements of a particular program, students must have a Masters degree or its equivalent with an academic average as specified by the academic unit.

A Qualifying Year may be required at the Masters level to meet the admission standards. Courses taken as part of a Qualifying Year cannot be used as credit towards a doctoral degree.
Meeting the minimum requirements does not necessarily guarantee admission. No candidate will be admitted unless the academic unit recommends admission. All applicants will be advised in writing by the Office of Graduate Studies of their admission status.
