    I've taught social studies at the high school level for 21 years. I'm planning to retire in four years and would like to teach history as an adjunct at a community college or a four -year institution. The problem is that my masters degrees are in liberal studies and school administration, rather than in history. I'd like to obtain an online M.A. in history that colleges will accept as the necessary credential for an adjunct position. The two programs that are the most reasonable and affordable seem to be Pittsburg State University in Kansas and American Military University. I'm a bit leery of AMU because it's an online-only for profit school. I'd appreciate any feedback about these or other online History masters programs.

    I replied on your other posting about the AMU History program. However, I wanted to mention that I wouldn't be leery of AMU because it's online-only. It was nationally accredited by the DETC since 1986, and since 2006, it has been regionally accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, which allows you to teach at a community college.

    According to APUS itself:

    - AMU was founded in 1991
    - AMU became state-licensed in 1992
    - AMU became DETC-accredited in 1995
    - APU was founded in 2002, and then AMU and APU were reorganized as APUS
    - APUS became regionally accredited in 2006.

    That was a typo. I meant to say 1996. It's been around since 91. RA since 2006.
