I just graduated with a Master's in Theology and have been accepted into a History Ph.D. program here in the U.S. However, I have been having second thoughts on taking on so much debt and have begun looking for cheaper options for doctoral degrees in history, theology, humanities, etc. I came across UNISA and was impressed with the number of programs they offered. And it seems very, very affordable. I noticed that I can not use my FASFA loan, but it seems attending the University does qualify someone for a deferment. From what I have briefly read online UNISA seems to have a decent reputation, but will my degree from their not be accepted here in the U.S.? And to the degree, that there might be some non-acceptance, would it be wide-spread, or just here and there? Oh, almost forgot.......my end goals are to be a professor. Thank you in advance! This is all new to me.
