      Greetings:
      I am new to postings on degreeinfo, but have followed most if not all your posts and degree completion. I plan on applying to Pretoria for a PhD in Theology, but have these questions and tap into your wide experience:
      - Is it possible to do a research paper from the USA, on a theological matter as it relates to an XX African country?
      - Would it be necessary to visit the African nation, since I will not necessarily conduct surveys? (although, I may use future evangelism trip to garner some information).
      - What methodology would be appropriate in this instance?

      You may post it so other can benefit or add their input.

      Many thanks for your insight.

      Tony,

      Do what I did. Get a good idea on what you want to research, then sell it to members of the appropriate department/faculty. Once I had two potential projects I wrote to each professor in the department, asking if anyone wanted to supervise me. Once a prof was interested, then I requested a residence waiver.

      If you want/need more info, ask.

      Hi CLSeibel,

      I am just writing to inquire about your experience at Pretoria. I have emailed Pretoria once regarding Doctoral studies, but the program staff directed me to UNISA since "Pretoria is not a distance learning university". However, I know of people on this board who live in the US are in Pretoria Doctoral programs. Do you have any advice or suggestions as to how I might be able to move into DL at Pretoria, without becoming a thorn in their side?

      Write back when you can.

      All the best,

      Tony
