Aims: The Doctoral Programme in Education is proposed as a complementary training for graduates in degrees of the field of education: Degree in Pedagogy, Social Education, Primary Education Teacher and Preschool Education Teacher. And also it is proposed as a complement of the specific training of other graduates with academic and professional profiles related to education. The doctoral studies shall, at minimum, to guarantee the acquisition by the doctoral students of the basic competencies which are in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, specifically: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society.

Description: Its interest and academic, scientific or professional relevance is reflected in the following considerations. On the one hand, in previous experiences of the University in the teaching of programmes of similar characteristics. This proposal is a continuation of the currently existing Doctoral Studies in Education (RD1393/2007) whose origins are in the transformation of the studies previously implemented, specified in various Doctoral Programmes connected to the structure of degrees previous to the Bologna reform (Royal decree 778/1998 of 30 April), to be phased out (Doctoral Programme 120F of the Department of Comparative Education and Education History, “Social and Political Studies of Education; Doctoral Programme 100 B of the Department of Teaching and Scholastic Organisation, “Crisis of the Legitimacy of Thought and Educative Practices”, Doctoral Programme 270 D of the Department of Research Methods and Educational Diagnosis”, Educational Intervention: Methods, Evaluations, Diagnosis and Guidance”... and so on up to six. And on the other hand, the current proposal means a transformation from the current doctoral programme, the Doctoral Programme in Education (RD 1393/2007).
