Having found myself in a pickle of probably having to choose between studying "stuff" in which I have no interest, in addition to paying a ton of money, to do DL PhD work thru an RA institution, or pursuing such work thru an unaccredited school, I've begun to investigate more seriously the possibility of pursuing a research-only PhD program thru a British or Australian school. I've looked at UNISA, and found that it wouldn't meet my subject matter interests. I'm 56 years old, my interest in this degree is not career-related, and my field of interest is defined by the title of a book written by Dr. Lionel Corbett at Pacifica Graduate Institute: "The Religious Function of the Psyche." Includes good stuff like Jungian psychology and mythology and history of religious traditions. So - - as I begin this adventure of further investigation, does anyone out there have recommendations or cautions about DL research-only programs?
