    Hi all,

    A low-residency/otherwise-online PhD I hadn't seen mentioned here before:

    Online except for 4 days in Pittsburgh each August so they classify it as low-residency. 2 years of coursework and then dissertation phase. Your first year of dissertation you need to attend a residency, it's not clear if they're expecting the dissertation phase to only last a year or if you don't need to keep attending in-person residencies beyond that.

    At $960 per credit hour (54 x 960 = $52K) it's not cheap, but you'd probably pay similar to Capella or Walden.

    Point Park is RA (Middle States).

    I would have preferred Community Development to Community Engagement on the degree title, but oh well.
