DOCTORATE (PHD)
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree is the qualification to kick-start
your research career. It is the highest degree Massey offers regularly. It
can be acquired in most of the disciplines, including the creative arts. It
may involve external supervisors from a CRI, or other research institute. It
is Massey’s most supervised, fully research-based degree.
A PhD is awarded for a thesis, which is an integrated and coherent report
demonstrating your ability to carry out independent research and analysis
at an advanced level in a particular field. Your thesis should make an
original contribution to knowledge of the subject it focuses upon.
It will be assessed by three independent examiners in a process that
includes thesis assessment reports and an oral examination. It normally
takes at least three years of full-time study to complete a PhD. If you’d
prefer to study part-time, you need to allow five to six years to complete
the research and writing.

NAMED DOCTORATES
Massey University offers two named doctoral degrees:
>> Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych)
>> Doctor of Social Work (DSW)

These are specially-designed degrees involving high-level study and
research. They are ideal professional development options for existing and
prospective senior managers and leaders.
Named doctorates basically comprise one-third course work/practicum
and two-thirds supervised research. In all other respects – including the
examination procedure – they’re equivalent to a PhD, especially in the
standards of discipline, rigour and scholarship required.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
Entry requirements for each programme vary, so it’s best to talk to the
team at Massey University to find out what level of postgraduate study is
right for you.
