Ph.D. in Science: What is it about?

Ph.D. in Science program has been designed to offer to eligible candidates’ specialization in a wide range of Learning, Cognition, Instruction, and Development concentration. Those who wish to pursue studies in biology education should be well versed in the content and methods of biology, while those who wish to pursue studies in physics education need to be knowledgeable of physics content and methods. This specialization is intended for students desiring a research-oriented doctoral experience.

Successful graduates of the course interested in pursuing further studies in the discipline may go for pursuing Postdoc. In general, a Ph.D. is the highest degree you can get. A Postdoc is simply a research position that is not permanent, i.e. no fixed contract or tenure. It is just an academic research job that's typically done after attaining a Ph.D. It's not a degree in its own right.

The program aims to build in student’s competent business acumen through advanced study of general subjects such as knowledge of physics content and methods, biology, later allowing them to specialize in a chosen area. Ph.D. in Science curriculum involves intensive study, culminating with the completion of a research-based dissertation.

One of the principal objectives of Ph.D. in Science course is to prepare students to conduct research about the learning and teaching of science within different scientific disciplines.
