    I'm looking for a reasonably priced online master's or doctoral program in sociology or social science education; I'd also like a program that would allow me to begin coursework sooner than later. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    LesAnn

    Hi lesann - You've chosen an area that has very few offerings. I believe that you'll soon find yourself in a position of having to make some difficult decisions. Check out the options noted in the following linked thread and then come back with some questions.

    Thanks for the link, Jack. Unfortunately, I get a "This page cannot be displayed" message when I click on it. Is it broken, or am I?

    It was my fault. Try again. It should work now.

    According to _Bears' Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning_, 15th edition (2003), it seems that the dissertation-only doctorate in sociology is available from:
    University of Luton www.luton.ac.uk (BG15, 139)
    University of Melbourne www.unimelb.edu.au (BG15, 140)
    University of South Africa www.unisa.ac.za BG15, 144)
    University of Tasmania www.international.utas.edu.au (BG15, 146)
    NB: I still dont have my _Bears' Guide_, 16th edition, yet, so hopefully the foregoing is not too far out of date.
    PS: Stateside, one might try Union Institute www.tui.edu .

    One might also check Goddard College www.goddard.edu and Vermont College of the Union Institute www.tui.edu to see if their MA programs in the Humanities and Social Sciences offer a possible sociology concentration. I would also check to see if Excelsior College's www.excelsior.edu new MA in Liberal Studies offers a sociology component. You might also check out Empire State College's www.esc.edu MA in Social Policy.
