About the Program

The doctoral program embraces the philosophy of SGISD. It promotes transdisciplinary research: crossing disciplinary, academic, and non-academic boundaries, as well as transnational inquiry, crossing borders and hemispheres. The program develops professionals skilled in integrating policies and practices into community training and capacity-building initiatives that invest in inclusion and social development worldwide.

The PhD curriculum focuses on research methodology, research execution, and the translation and application of research to policy and practice, with an even greater emphasis on leadership development. Graduates will be prepared for careers as researchers as well as policy and program analysts. They will be prepared to work in top-level leadership positions in the public and NGO sectors, leading teams of professionals in developing evidence-based policy and program solutions.
