Dr. Bunnie Claxton

I specialize in the applied research process.

imageI specialize in the applied research process. It is my desire to assist colleges and universities in developing applied research doctoral programs. From writing a textbook called, A Step-by-Step Guide to Conducting Applied Research in Education, to course development and program development, I am here to help. Whether you are creating a doctoral program from the ground up or redeveloping a doctoral program, my specialty is program development. Developing or redeveloping a program requires new policies and procedures to run the program, and it also requires specialized content to guide doctoral candidates through the process from commencement to culmination. This is my specialty. Contact me to see how we can work together to build a successful doctoral program at your college or university.
