    Fast Track PHD

    posted about 2 years ago

    Depending on the country it might also mean without doing the master first (?) Otherwise it would be a bit strange to have just 3 years of bachelor followed by a fast track Phd. That would mean only 5 years compared to the 8-9 years it takes in every other country. Can t believe that this is possible. Would be a bit too easy in my opinion 😉

    In Australia you can go straight from a BA Honours to a PhD without having to do any postgrad stuff in between.

    When I went to Australia for my Masters by Research Only (no coursework) in 2011, the first day I met my supervisor he advised me to upgrade to a PhD and to treat the project as a PhD project, which I did. I submitted in 3.5 years and have been finished since December 2014 (now graduated and officially a Dr yay!)

    I m originally from Canada, so had applied for a masters thinking that I had to do one first, but this wasn t the case in Australia.

    It s not a fast-track per say but the option to skip the MA if you have the capacity. However, there are upsides and downsides. The upside was a quicker finish for the PhD, but some downsides included feeling a bit behind (even though I did very well) because I didn t have the MA experience coming straight out from a BA honours, and feeling behind in some areas such as knowing about grants, getting published and conference attending. It was also a whole new subject area for me as well.

    So to fast track, the options need to be weighed. It hasn t impacted my career as I managed to land a T R position at my uni and am beginning to collaborate with other researchers on projects, but it also hasn t been easy.

    So one thing to keep in mind is that fast tracking can be a disadvantage for you when considering all the other not-so-directly related aspects of the PhD/Academic life. I had full funding from the university in the form of an international scholarship, so grants were not things I was thinking about (but now wish I had to beef up the CV).

    I had 4 years BA and then the PhD took an additional 3.5 years, so a total of 7.5 years.

    I definitely agree. I think even though it takes longer, there are big advantages to doing an MSc before a PhD.

    I think it depends on your long-term goals. If you go for a position in academia such as lecturer, assistant professor etc. it is probably an advantage. It is hard to compare PhD students among each other but I have a hard time believing that someone with only the bachelors degree has the same routine and performs as well as someone with a master degree. I definitely would not. We have 2 year master programms and that is often more than 1 year practical lab research + the course work combined. That is just a lot of experience.

    However, if you don t want to continue in academia, I would consider it a huge advantage to skip the master. Companies often appreciate younger applicants, as they are more shapeable and you also have the advantage of getting a real salary two years earlier. Not so bad. It is definitely one of the down sides that you are often 30 years + until you enter the job market.

    . It is hard to compare PhD students among each other but I have a hard time believing that someone with only the bachelors degree has the same routine and performs as well as someone with a master degree.

    I find this a little insulting. However, it s also not clear if you are referring to hard science degrees only, because I am in the social sciences and do mixed methods (quant/qual) as well as both content analysis and interviews as my major research methodologies.

    If the former, I may have had just bachelors with honours, but I also graduated with an exceptionally high average (over 90%), had two RAs under my belt by my undergraduate graduation, one completed for a not-for-profit while the other for my university, 2 scholarships and 1 grant, a publication and fieldwork experience.

    I performed exceptionally well during my PhD despite the set backs I mentioned earlier. I was fully funded, had a very strong result with my PhD examination (pass with minor and I mean took 2 days minor changes), continued to gain RA experience, completed social research tenders (i.e. outside the university research for not-for-profits/governments), conference presentations, had published from my PhD prior to submission and am currently publishing more works, and a heap of teaching experience that included complete unit coordination and lecturing as well as tutoring and guest lecturing. None of this includes any of the community outreach or professional service that I engage in on top of all of this.

    But this wasn t easy and I worked very, and I mean very hard. I knew I had a disadvantage coming in straight from a BA Honours, but to suggest that someone like me wouldn t perform as well as someone with a masters degree is a bit pretentious. I know a number of masters to PhDs doing absolutely poorly, and ones doing very well.

    It s highly individual and on that note, no PhD student will have the same routine that works for them.

    You would have exactly the same CV if you did a 2-year master before your PhD project. I am not saying that people who start a PhD after their bachelor degree are generally incompetent, but that 2 years more experience are 2 years more experience (for the individual researcher !). No need to justify yourself. It is just a completely objective fact. Of course you also find incompetent master graduates but that is completely individual. Those people would not have performed better if they started the PhD right away after the bachelor.I may relate it to natural sciences, but that does not change the point. More experience is more experience. I don t really believe that someone does 2 years of masters and does not develop at all.

    I did not mean that offensive but I truly believe that e.g. a physicist needs much more supervision and guidance if he starts a PhD after the bachelor compared to the same physicist with a master degree. If you just compare a master thesis to a bachelor thesis and the amount of time you spent for the research. That is a huge difference. I can t believe that this makes no difference for the individual. That you worked hard doesn t change that fact or would you ve worked less hard during a master degree? 😉

    This mission is accomplished by disseminating applied sport management knowledge and training, advancing theoretical research on sport organization management, and dedicated service to the state, nation, and world, with attention focused on equity and inclusion. Accordingly, we educate our students and the public in the science of sport organization dynamics to meet the ever-changing economic, cultural, and lifestyle growth patterns in the marketplace. The program meets numerous Imperatives established by Vision 2020 to move Texas A M into the ranks of the “ten best public universities in the nation.”

    The faculty consists of 13 members of all academic ranks, experts in virtually all Sport Management disciplines, who are recognized as outstanding teachers and scholars in the U.S. and internationally. We provide a professional and comprehensive education in the classroom, combined with real-world opportunities through internships with our partner organizations, to produce future leaders of the sport industry.

    Our Former Students are employed in virtually every segment of the sport business: Professional sports (NFL, NBA, MLB/MiLB, MLS), media and communications operations (ESPN, Fox Sports, Comcast), college athletic departments (TAMU and dozens of other universities), high school athletic departments, law firms, sport marketing operations, charitable and youth organizations (Little League, Shriners Challenge Baseball, YMCA, Christian camps), country clubs, health and fitness businesses, and many others.

    Students also have the opportunity to engage in international experiences such as a 5-week summer study abroad program in Germany and Austria, spring break Field Trip to Munich, Olympic Studies programs to Greece, and other options such as programs in Trinidad Tobago and Puerto Rico, with others to be added in the future.
