    PhD or EdD without masters requirement?

    Does anyone know of any online PhD or EdD programs without a master's requirement? I found Fielding but that's it.

    Basically, what PhD or EdD program can I apply to that is online and only requires a Bachelor's degree to be conferred?

    (I have 36 sh of graduate school but no conferred degree, and this is a question that comes up a lot among my colleagues).

    Thanks!

    Most British and Australian schools would take a BSc for a PhD but you would need to show some research background in a form of a thesis or publications.

    Northcentral might accept you into a PhD with graduate 36 credits

    Generally, even ones that will admit you will require you to make up the difference with the same amount of coursework. Not getting a Master's degree isn't really a shortcut.

    Yes I've noticed that, Steve. I supposed my eclectic graduate studies pathway has finally jumped up and bit me. Oh well. I'd better pony up and finish one of them in order to have a conferred degree under my belt.

    Northcentral: I talked to them and they said they would accept me into a master's program and the automatically reassign me into a doctoral program once I satisfied all the prerequisites. Only 9 credits would transfer.

    Capella University allows student to admit to Ph.D under conditional, which student must have degree conferred within 2 semesters. That was my time in 2011, but I am not sure if the rule has changed.

    Tekman, (hey a fellow jarhead!)

    Thanks for the heads-up. I crossed them off my list initially but now I'll just start making some phone calls.

    Fielding accepts bachelors level. It is online, but there are week long residencies in addition to monthly meetings.
