PhD, or Doctor of Philosophy, refers to the postgraduate degrees that are awarded to candidates after completing the university program. There are a variety of disciplines in which candidates can earn a PhD and there are programs around the world that offer top-notch education facilitated by faculty that are experts in their field. PhD programs prepare candidates for careers in academia, research, government, or industry.


Requirements in PhD programs vary depending on the country, the university, and the program. Most PhD programs require a master’s degree, but some will accept candidates with only a bachelor’s. Most programs take a minimum of 3 or 4 years to complete and require a combination of coursework and research, and others will expect candidates to teach undergraduate courses as well as write publications. The bulk of most PhD programs lie in the candidate’s original research that leads to a dissertation or thesis of publishable quality, that provides significant contribution to the field, and that candidates must defend in front of a panel of experts.

QBM seeks to train a cohort of young scientists who, while firmly anchored in their home discipline, are well versed in multiple approaches and styles of thought. The goal is for the students to get comfortable in communicating across traditional boundaries, especially across the divide between experiment and quantitative theory – to become, in effect, scientifically bi- or multilingual. To this end, the school offers an integrated interdisciplinary Ph.D. program that consists of three main components: -

Transpersonal psychology is transformative psychology of mind and body, and of the individual in felt connection with a diverse, interconnected, and evolving world. The field pays particular attention to mystical, spiritual, and other exceptional human experiences associated with healing and transformation—encounters that disclose a vibrant reality that enfolds our seemingly individual minds. We offer a whole-person approach to transpersonal psychology that includes learning and research structured to meet the needs and goals of working professionals. This approach includes affiliation with a planned research laboratory; a peer-reviewed journal produced in part by student interns; and senior scholars in the field who are available to guide student research. We are committed to diversity and inclusion, embodied tools for scholarship, and systematic approaches to building transpersonal areas of knowledge. Our program is offered as a part-time course of study, where online learning is supplemented by residential intensives. -

A Ph.D. by research is similar to a conventional Ph.D. but recognizes research work carried out by entrepreneurial companies and academic organizations that lead to novel and publishable results. A UNYP Ph.D. by research usually requires a minimum of three years, during which time there should be three publications, in literature approved by the University of Bolton. These publications should be in relation to the student's thesis and area of expertise and should develop the student’s knowledge of the subject. The award of this Ph.D. is based purely on these three published works and as such rewards on-going activities rather than additional work. -

The doctorate is an independent, self-directed academic research program, supported by a team of supervisors who make an original contribution to the knowledge written in a publishable thesis. The doctoral program also supports the development of research and generic skills to enable you to act successfully as a professional researcher in any setting. The essential requirement of a doctorate is the creation of new knowledge. Being a researcher means developing new ideas and improving understanding through the creation of new knowledge. Your research will inevitably draw to some extent on the work and ideas of others, but as a research student you are expected to make an original contribution to knowledge in your discipline. -
