PhD by research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis.  The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning.  The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University. 

A dissertation on this current topic of academic studies should examine the fundamental issues in peace studies from various perspectives. What are the concepts of peace? Is peace a relative status?  How do we understand violence, conflict, security, development, sustainability, democracy, equality and justice? What human, civil and political values are involved in peaceful and conflicting cultures? What are the practical means of building peaceful relations between peoples and countries? What are the key challenges and peaceful alternatives facing humanity now and in the future? There is no single answer to these questions, mainly because of the wide range of human experiences of peace and conflict and the complexity of interactions from local to global. A doctrinal research thesis in Peace Studies cannot disregard these topics.
