New Great Books-Based Distance PhD

Earlier today, the program director, Robert Woods, announced that the Christian Institute for the Study of Liberal Arts would begin offering a SACS-accredited, fully distance-based PhD program:

This PhD is literally one-of-a-kind in that it is fully accredited (SACS), offered fully distance with the dissertation being defended via conference call with a designated Research Fellow, and the student’s full committee having guided the research. This PhD is uniquely interdisciplinary in structure and practice. A number of the highly qualified faculty are generalists and encourage the kind of readings, research, and writing that reflects an interdisciplinary drive.

Last, but most important, this Great Books based PhD is completely informed by the Christian faith. All courses are led by people who have proven that Christianity assists in scholarship and is not a stumbling block to matters of the mind. Building on our very successful MLitt degree, we use the Great Books and select, highly interactive online tools to provide the best distance education available. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please feel free to contact us through our website.

I’ve been working with the Institute in different capacities from shortly before the initial MLitt degree kicked off. The involvement there has proven immensely enriching. One of our MLitt graduates has already had his thesis published, and we are eagerly looking forward to extending the conversation in the new doctoral program. For more information about the new PhD program, please see here, and send further inquiries to information@studyliberalarts.org.
