I’ve been doing some research into getting my Ph.D. While I’m still not quite ready to take on the challenge yet, like a good doobie, I’m poking around, requesting catalogues, and looking at different options for programs.
Yesterday morning, we were goofing around on the computer (when we SHOULD have been paying attention at a workshop about hybrid classes. For shame!) and found out just how much money a Ph.D. from Capella would cost.
I’m not over the shock yet.
If I’m looking at it correctly, we’re talking about sixteen THOUSAND dollars a year, or thereabouts. SIXTEEN THOUSAND.
My beloved says that anyone who actually pays for their Ph.D. is doing something very wrong – that Ph.D.s should always be subsidized by an outside entity, whether that be a school, an employer, or a sponsoring organization.
So my question to you, Dear Readers, is this: Who do you think would be willing to pay for my Ph.D.? Because even if I were ready to start studying again, I sure as hell can’t afford the asking price….
