One of the impending changes to identity and mindset that needs to be analyzed is the transition from a learner to researcher. Most learners that begin a doctoral program do so with some measure of confidence having previously completed a graduate program – the master’s degree – before being granted permission to pursue the doctorate. While it is a good thing to retain experiences and make connections to the previous graduate program, a mistake that learners often make is to assume that a doctoral program will be similar to the master’s program. This can facilitate unrealistic expectations for learners regardless of where the master’s was completed. Understanding that the doctorate is different from the master’s and that the doctoral experience is different for each individual enhances the ability of the learner to be successful on the doctoral journey. The struggle that Brenda and Michael experienced in transitioning to a doctoral program (Gardner, 2008).
What do you expect some of the differences will be between your master’s degree program and the doctoral program? What changes to identity and mindset are expected? What will be your socialization opportunities?
