    Part time PhD Programs in Informatics

    Most informatics programs are associated with engineering or computer science departments and share many of the same foci. More specifically, this discipline is usually concerned with the technical and ethical issues surrounding data storage, retrieval and manipulation.

    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.
