The 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.
This thesis should explore the four subfields of anthropology, namely archaeology, ethnology, physical anthropology and linguistics, which combine to give a complete understanding of humanity. It illustrates both the diversity of human societies and cultural models around the world and the similarities that make all human beings fundamentally similar. It also examines, from an anthropological point of view, the consequences of industrialism and globalization.
65 academic credits besides a Master's program. Max Average Duration: 18 months + 6 months further on demand.
Considering that APUW students come from all over the world, often miles away from the university headquarters, the Doctor PhD degree via distance learning thesis can be defended in three different ways:
- Written Defence: the student develops his/her defence in a 5 pages report;
- Oral Defense: (recommended) the student sends an audio or video file (at least 30 minutes duration) containing his/her defence;
- In presence: speaking in front of two/three professors of APUW University. The student sets a date with the Secretariat to defend his/her thesis in the APUW headquarters.
