    I've recently begun teaching world religion at a local community college. I've been able to do this due to my graduate credits in religion in my MDiv and ThM degrees.

    They've asked me to consider teaching more philosophy courses, but this will require taking 18 units of graduate Philosophy courses. I'm interested, but trying to figure the best way to do this. I'm sure it would take at least a year for me to complete the requirements, but it would certainly be worth it. I enjoy teaching and the local community college seems to like me.

    I don't need a program, just the classes. Any links to schools that would be most affordable and offer me the best route to my goal would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Must the school be regionally accredited?

    They haven't said. I figure if I get some options, I can run it all by them and let them help me decide which one to go with. They just said it had to be accredited and it had to be in philosophy. I already have the in there and have begun teaching, but not sure if that will make a difference. Just to say, the where isn't probably as important as my foot is in the door.

    Thanks! Looks like there are a couple notable options on there, such as SES and Holy Apostles. I like the MA in Humanities from the CSU school, but admissions on that has been shut down. I'm also looking into Liberty University as well as my local options. Regarding the latter, there are not great options. Eastern Michigan University is affordable, but they focus on an area of philosophy I'm neither interested in nor do I think it's the best way to prepare to provide introductory level teachings in philosophy.
