Hi all, I would love to get a Ph.D. in linguistics or applied linguistics online (I know there are a few international options), but realistically this is probably not a terribly attractive degree to offer, so I am not going to hold my breath. My next best option would be an Ed.D. in TESOL/TESL/ESL/ESOL/whatever, but there don't seem to be any degrees either. Am I missing something? I understand that the M.A./M.Ed is the terminal degree in the discipline (as it allows graduates to teach at universities and community colleges), but surely ELT is a large enough field for someone to have come up with a doctoral degree by distance?! Is anyone aware of any good doctoral programs in the field? I am only interested in programs offered by traditional B&M schools.
