Part time PhD Programs in General Studies

For the eclectic or noncommittal student, a general studies program can work wonders because it allows them to sample courses from several different majors. This academic smorgasbord can help illuminate areas of interest that students were not even aware they had.

Australia is an island country and continent of the southern hemisphere, in the SW Pacific, a member state of the Commonwealth.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Part-time learning allows one to obtain a degree or qualification even if one cannot attend school on a full-time basis. One can learn at one's own pace, gradually accumulating credits that count towards a final qualification.
