    My husband took video courses through Liberty

    University and Robert Wesleyan University. These were

    for Masters Degree and teacher certification in a new

    state. Both colleges were reasonable and offered

    excellent courses. Robert Wesleyan's were Lee Cantor

    courses--teaching related.



    Good luck!

    I go to school online. Most colleges in your area should offer at least some of the courses online. However, I wouldn't think that all of them would be online because of what you are wanting to study. Beware University of Phoenix online!!! I took a couple of courses with them years ago and even though everything was paid they tried to say it wasn't years later. Thank goodness I kept my receipts!

    <font size="2" color="teal" face="Comic Sans MS">11.0pt;font-family:"Comic Sans MS";color:teal;">Do your
    homework and make sure they are accredited. There are many online colleges
    out there who will take your $$$ and the degree is only worth the paper they
    are on, not the time invested. Talk to your local college and see if they
    offer an online degree – rather one you only have to go into the college
    for testing or something like that. Totally online degrees are usually are not
    the best to go to.

    Collegeboard.com is a really good website. You can search based on

    tuition, college size, major etc. I don't know if the website lets

    you search for Master's/PhD. programs but if you click a colleges'

    website it should give you all that information.



    I hope this helps, goodluck!

    Hi Betty,


    There is a college out west called the Western Governor's university that has teacher education by distance learning and they are very reasonable. I do not know if they have Master's or not. Also Goddard College and Norwich University both in Vermont have distance learning programs for teacher's .They do have amaster's program. The tuition is about ten grand a year whichis average.


    I also was given this great website on distance learning in general which is www.quickdegree.info/. Good luck Charlotte in Connecticut I just joined tonight. I am glad I could help someone..

    I know you requested on-line classes but have you thought about doing an internship at a school? My daughter will finish her bachelor degree this year and is going for her Masters next and will be saving $27,000 because she will be doing an internship teaching in middle school during the day and a few night time classes as required. Possibly getting two years of credit into one year. So instead of going to college for two years which would cost about $54,000 she gets her Masters Degree for free and in one year instead of two. Something to think about. Especially if someone could afford to not work for a year. Or work part time at night. No college bills or loans to pay off. Something to consider.

    I agree. I know a lady that studies online and got her degree. When

    she went job hunting, her degree was not accepted because it wasn't

    accredited with the state's board of education. Colleges are now

    offering some online classes. Please be careful.

    I have two classes to complete my Master of Business Administration with University of Phoenix and have never had trouble with them. My husband also attends and won a scholorship from them to complete his bachelor degree since he is an honor student. I am 45 and my husband is 56.

    Amen with the U of P experience...

    I am paying them now and will keep canceled checks!!!! They sent it to some "in-house" collections who will not respond to me nor validate the amount owed. When I log into my account it does not show the balance they say I owe anymore.... So I&#39;m at a loss what to do since I don&#39;t want it to go on my credit report.


    Grrr... And their education is "sub-par" at best. Most employers apparently won&#39;t even accept that as college education.

    My son going to U of P tho he just started there he likes it. I have been

    thinking of going there myself but I would be only taking one class at a

    time and paying for it as I go. That way I don't have to worry about loans

    and interest. But I want to be sure that if I ever did finish that it would

    be worth more than the paper it's printed on. So does the Collageboard

    website tell which ones are accredited?

    Have you had an employer recognize their degree as an actual college education yet? I have heard most places around here won&#39;t. So far my experience with them has been sub-par at best.

    I have despaired of ever getting my four-year degree. My shift lead does not even have high school - lol!!! And the job advertised the requirement of college - I got it because I knew people. I think only one of the entire department has college and that person&#39;s degree is totally unrelated to the job. (tech industry). We all do our jobs just fine without college - the guy without high school is totally brilliant!!!
