I noticed that a number of instructors on the websites above had PhD's in MA. What exactly is that and where does one go to school to get it? Just curious.
You misunderstand the abbreviation here.
it's not Ph.D. but actually
P. h. D. == Piled higher and Deeper!
ps. so Dr. in front of the name makes perfect sense.
only tradition keeps the initials following the name.
The meaning would be most clear as Dr. P.h.D. so-and-so.
