Biology

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.

The PhD in Biology is a program for students furthering their studies in development and health sciences. The qualifying exams also include a research proposal. The course helps one to understand more in the field of biological sciences. You can study from any part of the world; in US, UK or any other place. The course is affordable and marketable globally.

Africa is a continent of 53 independent countries and a rich mix of native peoples, cultures, economies and history. Africa is the second largest continent in the world.
