Featured PhD Schools Online

Earning a doctoral degree online is possible from many schools and institutions. Some schools may require students to participate in both an internship and a residency as part of the degree program. Internships may be designed to give students hands-on experience required by their degree while residencies are typically designed to allow students and faculty to connect. In some schools, the residency can last as long as a few weeks or a long as a summer or even longer.
