Blue Marble University Opens 2 year Online Dissertation Only PhD Degree Program

Blue Marble University, the world’s most innovative and original virtual educational institution, now offers a dissertation only PhD in Humanities-Creative Arts and Sciences.


This exciting 2 year online program serves the creative, inventive, and productive student by allowing the student to obtain a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree through the construction of a substantial creative independent work.

Meant to be completed in two years, although a longer time is acceptable,  this is an online program that does not require any campus visit nor on campus work. As a virtual  university, Blue Marble has no campus, but delivers educational opportunities over the internet to international students from everywhere, including the USA, Canada, Europe, many African countries, India, and Asia.

As summarized on its website:   “The dissertation only PhD program is open to anyone, from any field of endeavor,  and with any interest.”

Not only open to anyone, virtually any subject matter in Arts or Sciences is considered as well, and is not limited to the Humanities.  The website states:

“The work may be, by way of example and not meant to include all the categories, a novel, a work of history, an archaeological discovery, a film, a video, musical work, a research paper, a photographic journal, natural environment photography, a novel use of the internet or other modern technology, a unique creation of 3D modeling or virtual worlds, a contribution to robotics, a summary or review of medical technology…. in short–any topic of interest to the student for which an original work that contributes to human kind or society may be completed. Special preference will be given to students who create special items to enhance the University, such as a virtual world area for the website or otherwise.”

There are no particular academic pre-requisites, as the focus is on the independent project to be completed. Therefore, the project, not past academic achievement, is central to the program. However, in the application process, a student must demonstrate the possession of attendant skills in writing, communication, and presentation, such as to suggest the successful completion of the proposed project.

The cost of the program is the same as all other Blue Marble University’s doctoral and undergraduate programs: $2,950 USD per year with payment plan, or $2,550 USD per year if paid annually in advance. While it is assumed that the independent work can be completed within a two year period, additional annual tuition may be required where additional time is required, depending on the level of guidance required and the proximity of the work to projected completion.

At the conclusion of the program, students are awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.
