    Amaechi certain won't be just any old sportsman with half a brain, as he's still fighting for opportunities for all gay and black athletes.I'm just stuck trying to find out what happened to his doctoral research.

    Fair enough if he's moved on from his PhD (or still doing it!). But I can't find any university affiliated with him for PhD research. Not his alma mater Penn State University, or any British university for that matter. The thesis is purported to be child clinical psychology, and the Huffington Post claims that Amaechi already has a PhD degree. Any ideas?

    'Amaechi was awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science by Manchester Metropolitan University on July 19, 2007 in recognition of his achievements not only as an athlete and broadcaster, but also for his charitable work with the National Literacy Trust, the NSPCC and the establishment of the ABC Foundation to encourage children to become involved in sport and their community.'

    Thanks for the quote. I've read that passage before, it states that he was awarded an honorary D. Sc degree. This cant be the end result of hid doctoral research. Now I'm wondering if Huffington Post just didn't exercise due diligence and got letters mixed up, and whether we'll ever know to Amaechi's PhD

    I guess no one here knows where John Amaechi started/completed his doctoral studies, then? It's baffled me that no information or answers to this question exist online haha
