    An apparently-new American University of London, even worse than the last one

    A correspondent writes that he has narrowed his PhD choices down to Kennedy-Western and American University of London. The latter, from the URL provided, seems to be a new one, at
    www.americanuniversity.org. They state clearly that they are not a British university.

    Instant degrees.
    Address is a mail receiving service.
    And . . . the registered address is
    American University
    4400 Massachusetts Ave NW
    Washington, DC 20016-8001
    Author/co-author: 15 editions of Bears Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning (10 Speed Press/Random House)
    Degree Mills: the billion-dollar industry that has sold more than a million fake diplomas (Prometheus Books)
    Finding Money for College, and 20+ other books on consumerism, cooking, computers, and bestsellers.
    B.A., M.J., University of California Berkeley; Ph.D. Michigan State University

    there's a familiar name on the web site...

    Hi John,

    The full URL is www.americanuniversity.org.uk and if you look here:

    www.americanuniversity.org.uk/homelandsec.htm

    you'll see that Richard J. Hoyer is present on the site recruiting staff for one of his projects. Since Mr. Hoyer is also the Executive Director of the International College of Homeland Security (www.homeland-security-college.org) as well as Vice President of World Programs for the World Security Organization (wso2000.tripod.com) it could be that he is recruiting for these efforts. Or perhaps AUOL is opening up its own security school.
