    Columbia Southern University (SACSCOC-accredited) announced 27 new programs, including a Doctor of Occupational Safety & Health (DOSH), in April 2023.

    Press Release

    Doctor of Occupational Safety and Health - $545/credit

    In 2020, they signed an MOU with Capitol Technology University, which allowed graduates of its Master’s in Occupational Safety and Health degree direct admission into Capitol Tech’s Ph.D. in Occupational Health and Safety.

    I think they used the wrong wording. A lot of it is new concentrations. For example, they always had a bachelor's degree in psychology. However, they included the following in the press release:

    Bachelor of Science in Psychology – Criminal Justice
    Bachelor of Science in Psychology – Diversity and Inclusion
    Bachelor of Science in Psychology – Forensics
    Bachelor of Science in Psychology – Industrial/Organizational
    Bachelor of Science in Psychology – Mental Health

    I am glad to see that CSU hasn't jacked up its tuition (at least not yet) since earning SACS accreditation in December 2022. Tuition is still low.

    Undergraduate $270
    Graduate $349
    Doctoral $545

    I love that about them. (The low tuition). They are definitely on my list of potential schools. Especially if I can ever get selected for the Hero behind the Hero scholarship. That would be amazing.

    Definitely one of the best values especially now that they have earned RA.

    It’s a professional doctorate. At CTU it’s a PhD.
    I knew Robert Mayes at CSU, if you wanna know a little history when it all started, the official school name was The University of Environmental Sciences

    Good luck!
