The purposes of this study are to introduce our newly established doctoral program and to discuss what the program aims at with some issues to be improved in the future. In April 2012, Aichi University of Education and Shizuoka University cooperatively began a new doctoral program; Cooperative Doctoral Course in Subject Development (CDCSD). Students fulfilling the course requirements are expected to receive a degree of Doctor of Education, which we would like to abbreviate as “DoE” in this paper because this DoE is fundamentally different from the Ed.D. or Ph.D. administered in America. The faculty members have been trying to establish a new type of Doctor of Education, which we believe is suitable for Japan. The main purpose of CDCSD is to foster teachers who can teach at university-level teacher training programs in Japan. In other words, we would like to foster university professors who have a wide range of academic knowledge. Thus, graduates from the program are required to have both theoretical and applied knowledge of their specialized fields, and also teach university students in undergraduate and Master level programs.
