Hobart, Washington (PressExposure) November 24, 2009 -- Online PhD Programs has just released a new website that is all about getting your PhD online. This website will allow free information to be shared to all members and non members alike. This website gives the most up to date information on all of the PhD degree programs available. The main information page on the Online PhD Program website can be viewed for free at: http://online-phd-programs.org/
Here is an excerpt from the new Online PhD Programs webpage: "The first trends started with undergraduate programs that were available online. Then the online university offerings expanded to masters programs. As you can probably imagine, the next logical step is to expand to Online PHD Programs. However, a lot of the educational system was not ready to move to this step quite yet. A PHD has a stigma associated with it that it is a very prestigious degree and a lot of people thought offering an online program would dilute the prestige that came along with the title. However, as demand increased some of the first online programs for a PHD became available.
Depending on what type of PHD you are trying to get depends of if there would be an online degree available. For instance, if your area of study require a lot of experimentation, lab work, and hands on study then as you can imagine you canât do this while you are sitting behind a desk. However, you may be able to take some courses online and then schedule the courses that have to be done in person when the class is offered. Also, every PHD has a thesis and you will have to defend your thesis. This usually requires some interaction with people and you will not be able to defend your thesis via an online camera in most cases."
