    New in Town...

    Hey,

    My name is Susan, but my students call me DrB, hence the username.

    I've been teaching philosophy in traditional and online environments for about 9 years, now, and do online for traditional schools, online for-profits, and an online not for profit. I also do blends/hybrids for some of my on campus courses.

    I can't believe I've not run across these forums before, but am happy to have. Always interested in what other folks have to say and their experiences and in learning new perspectives and ways of approaching the work.

    Hi Susan - Welcome to degreeinfo. We know a little about earning philosophy degrees through distance learning. Maybe you can add to our knowledge. Here's a question right off the top, what do you think about the philosophical gourmet? I mean specifically in regards to the rankings.

    Red face Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Hey, Kizmet,

    Many thanks for the warm welcome and a very long answer to a very short question...

    In qualifying my answer to your query, first, I didn’t earn any of my degrees online (although I have taken some courses online), and, second, I don’t hold a philosophy degree, but one in Interdisciplinary Humanities. The majority of my coursework within the IH degree was in philosophy which I fortified with my Ed.D. research in moral reasoning and development. I further supported my experience, by way of that degree, in instructional systems in online design and development.

    Anyway and with all that said, looking to those on the advisory board of the Philosophical Gourmet, I see several folks whose names I recognize and some whose work and academic endeavors I admire (e.g. Annas and Chalmers). Taking a rather pragmatic view, though, I don’t know that the ‘Gourmet’ would necessarily have influenced me as prospective student, although it might others. I am quite happy with my choices, yet it’s not difficult to figure that the top 13 in the US and the top 4 or 5 in the UK are what they are.

    In my small world at a southern regional (where there is no Ph.D. program), I’ve been quite fortunate to have professors from Harvard, Temple, Boston U., Yale, and others. I have mentors who have attended Oxford, Stanford, UC Berkley, and so on. My committee chair also was at the Max Plank institute. For me, it’s the next best thing to being there, which is rather, at least to my mind, intended to be a part of the experience no matter which school one attends. I would not change or exchange my experiences for another’s in any case.

    I am exceptionally interested in any conversations concerning online philo degrees because I think there is great potential there, although I think many died in the wool are in denial (only IMHO); I am quite interesting in learning more about that conversation.

    Greetings DegreeInfo posters and lurkers,
    I am a minister in a small town outside of Nashville, TN. I also have worked as an administrator for a small Christian University as Director of Admissions. While I have already earned a graduate degree I am currently researching MTS programs to prepare me for doctoral studies.

    This is a wonderful site with a lot of good information.

    Hello everybody, my name is Victor. I am new to this site.
    I hope you can help me. I am a mature person with a long job experience trying to get a degree, if possible, through examinations alone. I live in South America and it is relatively expensive to travel to the US.

    I can read classical Latin and Greek since I am a kid. I Have written several books of essays. Also have a good knowledge of math, from calculus to more advance stuff.
    Is there a way to use this knowledge to get a degree?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Smile Hello!

    Hi there! I'm a complete newbie to this site but my mom is a regular. Her name is Lindagerr. I'm so proud of my mom for getting so far! I'm following in her footsteps (kinda) and going for my own Associates now! I'm unemployed right now and that makes money a huge issue. I'm hoping to use either the Tuition waiver program, which I'm not crazy about, or some other kind of financial aid. My biggest problem is that I know next to nothing about what to do! Thank goodness for mom!
