Welcome

The PhD in International Conflict Management at Kennesaw State University (KSU) currently has students from around the world, creating a dynamic, yet intimate, educational environment.

About

“Doctoral students and faculty at LIU Brooklyn campus are hard at work in their research, clinical experiences, and academic coursework, but you won’t hear frantic footsteps and harried voices when you approach the Psychology Department on the 8th floor. Walking through the light wooden doors of the LIU Clinical Psychology program, you are greeted by modern glass-walled rooms, soft lights, and students gathered cozily on couches in thoughtful and engaged conversation. It’s the things that you may overlook on first glance - a faculty’s hand on a student’s shoulder offering advice on the research design of a study; a second-year student peering over the stats book of a first-year student explaining a data set; a friendly joke and nudge passed between professor and graduate assistant as they exchange morning greetings. As a graduate student in the LIU community, these supportive relationships distinguish the program in poignant ways. The pressures of competition amongst peers are nonexistent; instead, an atmosphere is born of common goals, collaborative work, and nurturance, as students and faculty alike push themselves towards excellence as scholars and clinicians.” – a doctoral student...

PhD in Anthropology and Social Change

Anthropology and Social Change is a small, innovative graduate department with a particular focus on activist scholarship, militant research, and social change. Our unique approach to ethnographic research methodology dissolves traditional barriers between research and political activism, between insiders and outsiders, and between researchers and protagonists. Ethnography is a tool for "creating the conditions we describe." We engage in the process of co-research to explore existing alternatives and possibilities for social change.

Students learn how to apply the practice of direct action to the research process with the support of talented faculty. We set out to create the conditions we describe when our research begins to embody the values of the world we want to create.... [-]

EUCLID (Euclid University)

A specialized online Ph.D. offered by an intergovernmental university with recognized expertise in interfaith studies. ... [+]

HIGHLIGHTS:

The DIRD (and DIFS) are unique programs in the sense that they are actually offered by an intergovernmental organization with a university charter and an additional mandate in inter-religious dialogue and diplomacy. Notably, EUCLID is the only university which has received the first prize of the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week, presented by H.M. King Abdullah of Jordan (photo below).

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

EUCLID offers several closely related but nevertheless distinct graduate programs:

DIRD: Ph.D. in Interreligious Dialogue and Diplomacy DIFS: Ph.D. in Interfaith Studies DCRel/DCCTh: PhD in Comparative Religion / Comparative Christian Theology

This page focuses on the DIRD: EUCLID’s Ph.D. in Inter-Religious Dialogue and Diplomacy, the umbrella program designed to train diplomats, government officials and civil servants in this complex and specialized field. These programs, delivered 100% online, exist to prepare government officials, social workers, clergy, theologians and faculty members to successfully and constructively engage in inter-religious dialogue and diplomacy. This program assumes a strong interest in religion, spirituality, theology, critical thinking, academic research and global affairs. Furthermore, it is open to students from all religious backgrounds including non-believers, although its focus may be of special interest to Muslims and Christians since it was—to an extent—developed in response to the “Common Word” initiative. However, it does assume the following:... [-]

Welcome to the Department of Political Science at Boston College

We are an unusual department, a department that has resisted the trend pushing political science research away from questions that are relevant to citizens and political actors. Though we are particularly strong in the humanistic and qualitative approaches to politics, we celebrate methodological diversity. Twenty-six full-time faculty members (both senior and junior) teach in the department. We are also fortunate to have colleagues in a variety of other research and practice positions. This results in a considerable range in subject matter and academic approach. What unites our nationally renowned faculty is the recognition of the primacy of political problems and the conviction that these problems should determine the methodology that is appropriate in each case....

Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD)

The doctoral (PsyD) program in clinical psychology is a 96-credit program based on the Practitioner-Scholar Model. The PsyD degree includes both training and coursework in clinical practice and research based on the premise that clinical practice and research can help inform and strengthen each other. Because the PsyD is a more practice-oriented degree, we place an emphasis on the development of the knowledge, skills, and competencies that psychologists use in clinical practice. Our doctoral program is built on a foundation of over a decade of graduating Masters-level students, many of whom are now active clinicians, teachers, supervisors and doctoral students. Graduates of the doctoral program can pursue clinical and research positions in the public and private sectors. Students who want to become a psychologist must successfully complete Doctoral-level training; pass a national examination, and fulfill all state licensing requirements (e.g., the required number of state-mandated supervised hours). ...

PhD in Anthropology

Anthropology seeks to understand the nature and origins of human biological variability, cultural diversity, and social formations through systematic exploration, scientific examination and the application of theory to human populations and their artifacts, including their social configurations, past and present.

Although anthropology has historically been most successful in the analysis of small sociocultural systems, its current challenge is to situate the direct objects of study in their global contexts in both space and time. The discipline draws freely on various fields of study in the humanities and in the social and natural sciences, and its diversity today is such that no single central mission earns a wide consensus....
