I'd like a PhD. Mostly for myself. I haven't nailed down a subject area yet. I've never considered a foreign degree; I think the main reason is that I'm not sure how it will be received. So, from those with experience, how are foreign degrees received by potential employers? In addition, it looks like UNISA offers PhD's that research degrees, no course work required. Is that like only doing a dissertation? How hard are they compared to a U.S. school?
