DOCTORATE
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree is the qualification to kick-start
your research career. It is the highest degree Massey offers and can be
acquired in most of the disciplines. It may involve external supervisors
from a 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, or an advanced creative-practice
work including a substantial written component. 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 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.
