U. of Phoenix Online Adds 3 Doctoral Programs and a School of Advanced Studies
By ELIZABETH F. FARRELL
The University of Phoenix Online received approval last week from its accreditor to add three doctoral programs, and it has created a School of Advanced Studies to support the new curriculums.
William Pepicello, dean of the school, said the university decided to offer the new doctorates -- in business administration, education, and health-care administration -- based on the strength and popularity of its undergraduate and master's-degree programs in the same disciplines.
