PhD Programs at Accord University
Graduate school is something that many people aspire to achieve after they have finished their undergraduate degree. They see it as one of the best ways to get a higher paying job in engineering or business, or even to become a professor. The cost of tuition for these programs can be substantial, however, so students are often looking for ways to pay for it on their own. If you are considering applying for graduate school at Accord University, here is what you should know about PhD programs.
What's the Difference Between a Master's and a PhD?
A Master's Degree is one of two types of degrees that students can use to pursue a PhD. If you want to be a professor, this is the model that you want. You can also decide to do a PhD as an individual study program. The goal for this degree is simply to learn more about your field and improve your skills.
What PhD Programs Are Available?
The first thing you should know about PhD programs is that they are generally longer than Masters degrees. A Master’s program takes two years, while a PhD generally takes four. We at Accord University require that students spend at least one to three years as a teaching assistant (TA), which allows them to gain important experience. During this time, they can either teach their own classes or assist other teachers in the classroom.

Climate Change & Somalia
Climate change is a global issue that is already starting to have devastating effects on many countries around the world. As temperatures continue to rise in certain areas, more people are becoming displaced due to the lack of habitable conditions in these areas. Somalia is in an especially precarious situation because it has no natural resources left available to support its population. Most of the locals are refugees, with little hope for the future.
A look at what climate change means for this country and how people are trying to cope with this issue.
Somalia is one of the world's poorest nations, having few natural resources left available to support its population of nearly 10 million people. Most of the people in Somalia are refugees, with little hope for the future.
Climate change is affecting the livelihoods of the country's weakest people, according to a United Nations News Centre report. Sustainable development plans must include plans to protect the rights of the most vulnerable, both in terms of climate change and other environmental needs.
There are many reasons why climate change is affecting Somalia. One example of how it affects the country is the valuable agriculture sector.
The winter monsoon season can be predicted to be very harsh, particularly because the rains come out of season and dry up all water sources. This will lead to famine, loss of land and health issues for those who survive the floods because there won't be enough food for everyone. The effects of extreme weather conditions can also impact drinking water sources for both people and livestock. As the climate changes, there are also certain resources in Somalia that are in danger of disappearing. For example, the glaciers in the northern part of the country are receding due to global warming.
According to The National Environment Management Authority in Somalia (NEMA), one of the most severe consequences in Somalia is soil erosion. It is predicted that within the next five years, three million hectares of land will be affected by soil erosion. This will result in famine and loss of farming land for farmers who rely on this land to survive.
The residents of this country are very aware that their livelihoods are threatened by climate change. #Somalia #ClimateChange #AccordUniversity #Accord
In the two-plus years since IBM's Watson supercomputer defeated human opponents on a Jeopardy! quiz show, artificial intelligence has finally made the leap from laboratory curiosity to a technology with real-world impacts.
In the not-too-distant future, for example, a robotic "doctor" could diagnose your ailments more quickly and accurately than a human physician. In the security arena, surveillance cameras could alert law enforcement to suspicious activity while cameras on bridges and buildings warn of impending earthquakes.
How did AI get to this point? After all, it's been a half-century since pioneering scientists such as Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy began theorizing about machines that could think on their own.
Machine learning is going to transform many aspects of our lives in the near future, from breaking down language barriers in global communications to getting customized advice from doctors about treatment choices. With so much progress happening so quickly, it’s easy for experts and non-experts alike to get lost in hype and confusion. To help people sort through some of what’s been written about AI lately, here is a list of key articles that outline what’s really happening with this fast-evolving field.

The SDG 16+ forum which promotes the UN 2030 agenda for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies.
April, 12, 2021
Many people are not fully aware of the goals for which the 2030 agenda was developed. Here is a brief look at what each goal stands for, and how they will help to achieve sustainability.
The SDG 16+ forum seeks to promote communication between civil society members across developing regions on issues related to human rights, economic development, social justice and environmental sustainability. The objective is to create a forum for social development practitioners to discuss practical issues of social development practice both globally and regionally. SDG 16+ will enable civil society to engage more effectively with the wider development sector on issues of international development, thereby promoting greater social inclusion.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to be used as a blueprint to achieve peaceful, just and inclusive societies over the next 15 years. The agenda embodies the values of justice, equality, democracy, rights and respect for international law. The United Nations Member States have committed themselves to using this agenda through 2030 in order to eradicate poverty and inequality, combat climate change and its impacts, end hunger worldwide, protect our planet’s biodiversity heritage sustainably. It aims at leaving no one behind at any point in time. The Agenda is anchored by 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 169 targets aimed at eradicating poverty- meaning people living on less than USD 1.25 a day, ensuring life on a sustainable basis, and ensuring the full and inclusive participation of women at all levels. Most of the targets involve concrete actions to be taken by all countries over a period of ten years beginning in 2015. The agenda also aims at promoting peaceful and inclusive societies, respecting cultural diversity and promoting multi-stakeholder partnerships.
The VC of Accord University who is also the SG at UNASOM Prof. Abdulkadir B. Mohamed Participated the SDG 16+ forum which promotes the UN 2030 agenda for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies. He was joined by other members from the administration of Accord University and UNASOM.
Amongst the prominent individuals who participated in the forum via Zoom were Secretary-General of WFUNA Bonian Golmohammadi and other WFUNA New York Headquarters members such as Nicholas Astier, Alexander Shah, and Chloe LaChapelle.

Ninth Week of Thesis Defence
April, 03, 2021
Today the candidates have been doing well to present their outcomes, they have accomplished this benchmark which was another day of thesis defenses. We as a country as a whole want to keep making strides and we want to increase the country's higher education level. One way we're doing this is through introducing e-learning into our higher education system and making certain budding innovators have a straightforward path to turning their innovations into strategies that solve the pressing problems of the twenty-first century.

This is made possible through e-learning and through the library. They also have access to tutors and teachers who can assist them when they're in need of such help.
Sixth Week of Thesis Defence
March, 13, 2021
Here are some considerations that may help the candidate to face the defense of their thesis.
1 – Only one defense is usually allowed. Once it has taken place, the thesis is considered approved. At this point it is not possible to make changes or additions to the thesis; It can only be possible with permission from your Professional Faculty (Faculdade profissional) and assuming that no major mistakes were made in your dissertation defense.
2 – If you want to make changes after your defense, you will need to resubmit the entire thesis, that is, not just the pages that you revised. This applies also if you wish to correct errors or even update references.
3 – You can always ask your professor for feedback related to the defense of your thesis. It is important to emphasise that you can change professors at any time after registering for graduation, so this may be done even if you do not intend to change the head of department.
4 – If you cannot get any feedback on your thesis, don't worry. Many doctors prefer not to get into discussions on topics they are not specialists in. However, if there were some major errors in the presentation (such as grammar or logic), you should address them directly with your professor instead of wait until it comes time for the oral defense of your thesis.
5 – The faculty has the right to reject your thesis if it even appears that it contains content that is in contradiction with ethical principles of the profession. This is a point to take into consideration when writing your thesis, and when planning how it should be presented in front of the examining committee.
