Lagos State University (LASU) has introduced a new doctorate programme called Doctor of Education.
This is perhaps the first of its kind in the Nigerian universities system where all doctorates have philosophy attached to whatever field one studies.
What distinguishes this from a PhD is that a Doctor of Education holder is a professional qualification until a PhD, which is academic.
Living up to its name as the “mother of all faculties”, the Faculty of Education, Lagos State University( LASU), on Tuesday, 29th December, 2020, conducted an orientation programme for the new intakes of this newest programme.
The event took place at the conference room, Faculty of Education, LASU Main Campus, Ojo, Lagos.
The Dean, Faculty of Education, Professor Tunde Owolabi in his speech welcomed the postgraduate students.
He stated that the department of educational management is the first in the country to offer such a professional course, Doctor of Education at that level.
He added that elsewhere, in the United States of America, the course is equally offered.
“Doctor of Education focuses more on professionalism, while Ph.d dwells more on research.
“D. ED as a course is rigorous. We have resource persons, that will give you the best. You are in good hands. Be focused.
“Our faculty is the first that will offer such professional course at a doctorate level. I wish you the best,” he stated.
Talking about the programme, Professor Ayodeji Abari noted that the programme is an executive one and for mature minds.
He assured the entrants that the resource persons would give the new intakes the best, adding that the programme would be completed at the right time.
Abari informed entrants that the programme is useful in education, public service, Non Governmental, citadel of learning, research institutes, organisations, corporate world and more.
“You are our ambassadors and as the first set of intakes, through you, we should have more students as the second set. With all things being equal, a minimum of three years, six semesters, you should be done”, he ended his talk.
The chairman of the Committee, on the programme, Mr Adebowale Alabi wrapped up the orientation programme with the vote of thanks.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
