Silly question, I know, but does this phrase mean, either a Ph.D. or an MFA, but not an MA?

"A terminal degree in an area related to Digital Media is required."

In any case, it sure makes me wish I had more of my dissertation done. I suppose applying now would be a waste of stamps...

Look on the bright side . . . if UCF is doing it, it can't something too far afield . . .Plus, you don't want to be in central Florida. Evie will think Disney World is a right. Besides, she might grow up to be a Florida girl . . . yuck ;)
