Ph. D. Programs:
Our Doctoral program is designed for graduates who will make significant contributions to knowledge in their fields of specialization. The program is rigorous and the intellectual challenge considerable. Students receive individual attention from the start and often collaborate in serious research with faculty members. The University of Fairwings offers doctoral study in the areas of specialization. Research degrees can offer the opportunity to earn advanced degrees with little or no residency, and often at a very economical cost. The subject and choices have been studied in detail by Do. John Bear in his book on non-traditional education, details of which can be found on the AED DL book list. Dr. Bear has also frequently answered questions on the subject via the AED news group. Australia, Britain and South Africa are leading sources of research-only degrees. However in keeping with the relative independence of universities in some of these countries, the approach can differ from one to the next and may strongly depend on a relationship with the university or a faculty member.
POPULAR FIELDS FOR DOCTORAL STUDY
Business (PhD, DBA)
The PhD in business focuses intensively on preparing candidates to direct highly specialized scholarly research while the Doctor of Business degree focuses on the application of theory rather than on the development of new theory. Despite the differences sited above, both degrees are considered academically equivalent. Graduates will be qualified to develop knowledge in the business disciplines and for the practical application of theory in the business world.
Education (PhD, EdD)
The PhD in Education degree will prepare students for teaching positions or administrative careers whereas the EdD typically prepares primary and secondary school administrators or teachers in academic departments of education. Both degrees are considered academically equivalent.
Engineering (PhD, DS, DEng)
The Doctorate in Engineering degree is best suited for leading research engineers who seek administrative or executive positions within the engineering industry. Common areas of specialization include: electrical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, telecommunications, industrial engineering and mechanical engineering.
Psychology (PhD, PsyD)
Both the Ph.D. in Psychology and the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) can be pursued through online study with UFW. The PhD in Psychology is sometimes considered a research degree while the PsyD is considered a counseling degree however these differences are not universal, both degrees are considered academically equivalent. Specializations such as clinical psychology, counseling psychology, educational psychology, or organizational psychology are possible by adjusting the student curriculum. (Not licensed)
With a more narrow focus than the bachelor's degree, the master's degree focuses on developing specialized knowledge in a more specific field of study. While requirements vary according to the university, a master's research degree usually requires 1-2 years of full time or part time study after completion of the bachelor's degree and can take longer if the student studies part time.
