That means I can pull Uo P off the list completely though.
The only reason they were on my list at all was because I thought those degrees lacked the dissertation requirement.
Blurring things further are doctorates that do not require a thesis/dissertation at all.
Some require a comparable (or, at least, substantive) project, but others without the requirement are emerging. These are not really doctoral degree programs, despite their titles.
Scholarly doctorates typically require original and significant contribution to theory.

This is typically done by either building or testing theory, fills a new niche in the field, and builds on the work of others.
Even though the program is only 42 credits, they only allow students to take two courses each fall and spring and one course in the summer making the program three years long. It seems like that one will end up taking about as long as a traditional doctorate.
Maybe a bit less depending on how quickly the dissertation can be completed and defended.
But I haven't found any other options, particularly for online-friendly RA schools.
My goal would be to finish in two years or less if possible.
