The  specialized  area  of  curriculum  studies  in  the  Doctor  of  Education  programme  is  designed  for practitioners  who  aspire  to  develop  their  professional  knowledge  and  skills  in  the  field  of  curriculum. Curriculum Studies lies at the heart of the education process and is an important area of inquiry that focuses on what is learnt and should be learnt in educational settings.  It is also a significant area of study in the era of global educational reform with learning experiencing paradigm shifts. Both the international and local perspectives in this specialization will help equip participants - in the course of rigorous training consisting of well-structured course work as well as research components - with the ability to develop the best  professional  practice.  Participants  will  be  given  the  opportunity  of  examining  the  complexities  of curriculum development  in  various  contexts  –  all  of  which  have  different  degrees  of  influence  on implementation issues, from political, social and cultural points of view. Consequently, through rigorous inquiry, participants will attain their scholarly and professional goals.
