Part time PhD Programs in Economic Studies Economics Economic Development

Economic development is a study that prepares students to use economic theories to create policies that help a nation’s people prosper economically and socially. This area of economics focuses on the growth of a country and its citizens.

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.

Part-time learning allows one to obtain a degree or qualification even if one cannot attend school on a full-time basis. One can learn at one's own pace, gradually accumulating credits that count towards a final qualification.
