    Ted,
    One day you will come up with a doctorate in History online.
    Then you will have reached legendary status (if you already haven't)!!
    all the best,
    Gavin

    I thought Queens University (Canandian Institution) offers Ph.D in History online.

    Thanks for finding this!

    I have always thought history was a field ideally suited for DL, although not as profitable as some others. I am really encouraged to see this – WKU is a very solid school. They had William Lane on their faculty, who was a huge name in Biblical studies (wrote major commentaries on Hebrews and Mark & taught for years at Gordon-Conwell.) One of my mentors studied under him for the MA in humanities at WKU.

    One disquieting note: admission to the residential MA in History requires a GRE score of 1200, which is pretty good. The DL version only requires that you get a 2200… when you multiply your GRE score by your GPA. I hope the faculty won’t see this as a two-tiered program.
