Where can I get a BA in English online in GA, FL, or AL? No “internet universities,” please. Thanks!

By | August 4, 2015

I’m looking for a “campus school” in Georgia, Alabama, or Florida that offers most of its BA in English program online, preferably not something along the lines of University of Phoenix. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    St. Leo in Florida is one of the biggest online providers, and yet is campus-based.

    Is there any reason why you want a school specifically in GA, AL, or FL?

    I don’t know of any schools in GA, FL, or AL with actual online B.A.’s in English, but here are a couple brick and mortar universities that offer an English B.A. completely online, and they have a reduced tuition rate for online students, so you will not have to pay out-of-state tuition.

    University of Illinois at Springfield:

    University of Maryland University College:

    If you are a miltary spouse, you will qualify for instate tuition, otherwise, it is $444 a credit hour.

    Those are the only two that I could find. But you may be able to find more by googling “state university” with “online English B.A.” I understand what you are getting at about not wanting something that screams “online university.” Not only are they usually private and therefore super expensive, but future employers probably would not put as much weight in the degree. Your best bet is to find a state university somewhere that offers a degree online. This way you are sure that it is accredited, it is affordable, and no one would even know that you did the degree online. Your transcript won’t even show which classes were done online and which weren’t.

    Just keep looking, and you will find what works for you. I was recently in the same boat as you. I was an English Education major in TN when I got married to a service member and we moved to Florida. After dealing with the ordeal of transfering state to state and having a child, I realized that I needed to find a program that was online so I could “take my classes with me” when we move, and I also wanted to be home with my new son. I decided to transfer into the online Elementary Education/ESE education program at the University of West Florida. I really like it, and when I finish next year, I plan to get a M.A. in English from Northern Arizona University online. That will allow me to teach high school/ college English, which was my original plan, but I could also teacher Elem. school as a back up if they do not need an English teacher when we move somewhere new.

    Well, I hope that this helps. Best of luck in your pursuit.
