Good folks, How difficult is it to open a college and obtain regional accreditation? There is a huge lack of distance history programs, particularly doctoral programs. I think it would be awesome to assemble a group of academic and organizational professionals and put together a school which focuses exclusively on history programs. The school would be highly selective in admissions, provide excellent distance, research oriented academics, and would be very transfer friendly for undergraduate studies. The curriculim for historical studies would be practicum focused, and many classes would revolve around physical visits (or series of visits) to museums and battlefields, after which short research summaries would be provided to substantiate learning. The school would obviously be non-profit, and would provide very affordable education. Thoughts?
