Humanities Studies

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.

A PhD in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences focuses on human thoughts and culture. It is an advanced level of education, often focusing on student teacher relationships, advanced research methods, and higher tier courses.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Doctorates in Humanities Studies in Cook in USA. Industrial/Organizational Psychology (PhD) Offered in: SCHAUMBURG The Department of Psychology's Doctor of Philosophy degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology is based on a scientist-practitioner model of professional training. The program enrolled its first ever Ph.D. students in the fall of 2012. This group represented the first Ph.D. students in the history of the entire university. The PhD program provides a more advanced degree in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology area. Generally, Master’s and PhD's in I/O psychology have a different focus and therefore prepare students for different kinds of work. While a master’s degree is an almost purely applied degree that prepares students for application of I/O psychology principles with a focus on practical skills, the PhD is a research degree that prepares students to conduct scientific research and analyze data with a much higher degree of sophistication. While the doctoral degree can prepare one for an academic career, most I/O psychologists, even those with the PhD, work outside of academia. The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, the leading professional organization for I/O psychologists, found in a 2006 membership survey that most respondents held PhDs (89% PhD, 11% master’s degree). Of these mostly PhD respondents, however, only 39% were employed by a college or university. I/O psychologists with PhDs work for companies, non-profit organizations, government, research institutes, consulting firms, and as independent consultants. They occupy roles similar to some that would be occupied by master’s-level I/O practitioners, but the PhD prepares practitioners for more sophisticated... [-]

Be equipped for greater ministry effectiveness. Our Doctor of Ministry invites men and women to step deeper into study of the Word, to broaden their perspectives on ministry practices, and to join with a global community of ministry practitioners in dialogue and study for the sake of the Gospel. The program is flexibly designed to fit the schedule and needs of full-time ministry professionals. Our Doctor of Ministry serves the church of the living God by strengthening the professional competence of persons in ministerial leadership through integration of advanced theory with contemporary practice. It is a professional program intended for persons who are in full-time vocational Christian ministry, such as pastors & pastoral staff, chaplains, Christian educators, missionaries, workers in parachurch organizations, and evangelists, both domestic and international. Where can this degree take me? The DMin is designed to enhance the professional competence of those already engaged in full-time ministry; it is an in-service program, enabling sutdents to complete the degree while taking minimal time away. As such, this degree’s purpose is one of deepening one’s current vocation rather than preparation for a future career. What will I study? DMin courses are all offered in one-week intensive class sessions (it’s not designed to be a residential program) offered on the Deerfield campus in March, July, and November. These courses are preceded by personal study and followed by a project that applies the coursework to the student’s ministry. Exceptions to the nonresidential nature of the program are occasionally made; talk to... [-]
