What do you guys think of this program at Colorado State University? I have a BS Math, and I'm working on an MA Math. Professionally, I've been working as a seismic processing geophysicist for just shy of two and a half years now. I might fall under the "applicable master's" category which would mean that I would have to take only six courses and then do the dissertation. Unfortunately, it's rather expensive and I'm not an executive which is for whom it says the program was designed.

That looks pretty hokey to me! Rather like a mail-order PhD.

If the degree is all you want (initials after your name), then by all means do it. If you really want to learn something, I think I would pass on this one.

Oh, wow. I was wondering if CSU had a good reputation. Well, it does say it's for "top executives," so maybe buying the initials is really the purpose. I'll keep looking. I'll be happy with my MA, but if I find an interesting PhD program that would minimize my course load by transferring much of my MA, then I would consider it. It may be a pipe dream, though.

Thanks.
