Abstract

This article seeks to explore the contribution that doctoral education can make to social work, as a profession and an academic discipline. In doing so it explains current arrangements for approving doctoral education by the research council and describes different routes to acquiring a doctorate. This overview highlights that doctoral education provides both opportunities and challenges both to those undertaking it, and to university departments offering it.
