O que eu aprenderei?

The Doctor of Social Sciences (DSocSci) program responds to the growing demand nationally and internationally for scholar-practitioners who can provide intellectual leadership in the workplace, and help build sustainable organizations, communities and societies in an age of global interdependence.

The program of study is designed to build your knowledge and understanding of a range of applied social research methodologies and their relevance to specific practical social purposes. The DSocSci program is based on the academic and professional expertise of the faculty at Royal Roads University.

Who It's For

You are a career professional with a master’s degree in one of the social sciences or related disciplines with a minimum of 10 years work experience in a position of decision-making authority. You are also seeking to advance your applied research skills, and provide analytical leadership to solve complex real-world problems.

The program design is tailored to career professionals and speaks to recent Canadian research that shows two out of three PhD graduates will work in non-university settings, rather than as university professors.

This degree will be of particular interest to policy analysts, senior administrators or executives from the public, private or non-profit sectors who work in areas such as natural resource management, health care, global security, professional communication, disaster relief, humanitarian aid, conflict management, values-based leadership, environmental sustainability or learning and technology.

Outcomes

The DSocSci is a professional degree program that focuses on the interdisciplinary applications of the social sciences to our contemporary world. Through such applied research, the program addresses complex real-world problems at the organizational, community, and societal level. The program responds to the national and global demand for workplace leaders with doctoral-level research skills who have the capacity for social and organizational innovation in support of sustainable organizations, communities, and societies.

Competency Framework

The competency framework is comprised of five competency domains and is a guide for pedagogical design and learning assessment. It articulates the goals of the DSocSci program specifically in terms of the desired outcomes for learning. Program competencies will be demonstrated in course work, program participation, and especially dissertation design, decision, and management. A competency framework serves a series of purposes:

  • It is a means of orientation for teaching and learning in the program.
  • It becomes the basis of a learning contract between students and their faculty.
  • It permits consistency in program delivery while at the same time permitting flexibility and variation in particular course designs.
  • It provides a basis on which students can self-manage their work in the program
