Postgraduate in Educational Studies in African Public Universities

Hardley Musiega Sogoni, Dr. Daniel K Gakunga, Dr. Joseph N. Musembi

The paper examines the current position of the Masters and PhD education in education based programmes in African Universities. There was a rational need to increase the quality of graduate education to carter for development in education based studies. Most African universities encountered varied challenges which include the need to rehabilitate much of the physical facilities, the inadequate lecturers with PhD qualification, students admissions to programmes and the dismal number of graduates from different disciplines. The paper has a number of recommendations that could be taken, including capitalizing on excellent postgraduate centres, expanding masters and PhD training, opening up of faculty research opportunities and enhancing university independence, all of which would require substantial financial investment.

Keywords: Masters and PhD programmes, Quality and independence of University
