part-time Ph.D?

A wife of a friend of mine who is a chemist said that there is such a thing as a part-time Ph.D. Does such a thing exist b/c I didn't believe her when she first told me? Are there any in the life sciences and are these programs of good quality?

Tell your friend to show you an example of a part time PhD program in science!

I have heard part time PhD programs in engineering, but never in science.

Seton Hall University offers a PhD in Chemistry that supposedly accepts part time students. There are a lot of chemical and pharmaceutical companies located near the University - a good source of students.
