Since you asked about an associate's degree...try accd.edu--I think you are in the NE part of town so try Northeast Lakeview College.

They may not offer it yet, but give them time to grow. Try SAC instead and you can probably do all your classes (well, most anyway) online.

History Dept. SAC (http://www.alamo.edu/sac/history/default.htm - broken link)

When you major in such things as History, (government, psychology, etc..) you will follow a general A.A (associates of arts) degree, and plug in history classes for your electives. Each A.A requires certain residency core requirements. I am actually an academic advisor here at Northwest Vista College. DM if you want any other info. For a four year degree, I would recommend Texas A&M on the Southside (they offer a BA in History, and offer night classes) or UTSA.

Incarnate Word does I'm pretty sure & they have great history professors too. But it is expensive!

Since you're in the ACCD system, can you clarify what the OP said about Northlake? Are the classes there really not accredited? How does that work if it's part of the ACCD system? That almost seems pointless to attend classes at that campus.

Excellent advice, otherwise!

Since NE Lakeview is not yet accredited, all of the classes that they offer are actually offered under the supervision of one of the ACCD's accredited schools (either SAC or St. Philip's) so it is as if you are taking classes from one of those two schools.

??? So the class counts....just not the school? They are accredited courses from ACCD....not NE Lakeview? I just want to be clear, as the OP implied that the courses would not be accredited and count toward a degree or would be transferable to another accredited college or university.
