From my NS-677 class tonight. Thought it would be good to share with everyone. "Hello Class, Prof. Ward told us last semester that the PhD program will probably be ready in two or three years with about 15 students to start. He said that he has been given the okay to get it up and running by the President of Capitol and he will have more on it later" I have Prof Ward in 8 weeks, I will report back at that point in time. Good stuff!
