Introduction
The final phase of study for Walden University doctoral students is completion of a doctoral study, which begins with the preparation of a Doctoral Study Prospectus and ends with approval of the final doctoral study. Walden requires the doctoral study to reflect a high level of scholarly effort and to be an original contribution to the knowledge or professional practice in a practice-based setting. Students should demonstrate knowledge of research design and execution as well as the ability to interpret research findings both orally and in writing. The final product should have the level of detail and sophistication expected of a doctoral level scholar-practitioner in the discipline.
