Graduate Studies

Welcome to the higher degree research program in the Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences. Our Faculty promotes cutting-edge research and establishes prominent avenues of research excellence in a diverse range of discipline areas from management, entrepreneurship, information technology to policing, neuro-psychology, and indigenous leadership.

Our Faculty offers a broad range of doctoral programs across its Schools and Research Centres, taught and supervised by distinguished academics. The PhD, and the professional doctorate programs, e.g., Doctor of Business Administration, Doctor of Law Enforcement and Security, provide intensive research training. Prospective students who are interested in conducting research that draws on theory and methodologies to advance knowledge should consider the Ph.D. degree. Those who are seeking to deepen their knowledge in professional practice should consider pursuing a professional doctorate.

For our doctoral programs, we seek candidates with a demonstrated capacity for academic excellence and the ability to investigate intrinsic problems, at the frontiers of their discipline. Research is a high priority at Charles Sturt University and therefore our Faculty provides a very supportive and stimulating environment for HDR students.

I invite you to explore our Faculty website for additional information on our programs, eligibility requirements, course offerings and scholarships, and to discover more about our faculty, staff and students. If you have any questions, or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I wish you good luck with your studies.
