MBA student looking for the right PhD

Thank you very much Ash79,

I really appreciate your detailed response, that helps a lot.

In your experience, do most online communications PhD programs have a mandatory in-class component where you need to convene on campus, or are there a lot that are strictly 100% online? Do you also think that an undergraduate degree in communications, with an MBA, would qualify for a PhD in communications?

Thank you very much for your time, I truly appreciate it.

MBA student looking for the right PhD

Hello everyone,

I have been searching for a while now in hopes of finding the perfect PhD program for me and finally convinced myself to ask for your help.

I am an MBA student at the University of Fredericton in Canada, with an undergraduate Bachelors degree in Communications, majoring in public relations, minoring in business. While I have a career I am very happy with in Investor Relations, I am extremely interested in hip hop culture and specifically how rap music has helped shape some african american societies in the USA. I have searched continuously over the last few weeks and have been unable to determine whether it is a PhD in sociology, communications, philosophy or even something else that I am looking for...

My previous education is not directly related to some of these fields at all, but I am only looking to complete a PhD program for personal interest and nothing else. My question is - does anyone know what type of PhD program would be best for research in the area of hip hop / rap music? I am also looking to complete the program online.

Thank you very much for your time - I know this is an odd expertise request but I look forward to any advice.
