Apparently the admissions evaluators for this program only recognize BAs received from schools accredited by the Western Regional Accreditation board. I was denied admission because "A Bachelor's Degree has not been received from an accredited institution." I received my BA from Northwestern University, which is currently ranked as the No. 13 liberal arts college in the U.S. by U.S. News and World Report. The rejection letter was signed by Brandy McLelland, and when I called the HUX office to talk to her, and explain that Northwestern is indeed accredited, I was told that "she doesn't take calls." From that point, I was bounced to at least three other people, who all said the same thing... you did not received a degree from an accredited institution. Case closed. Apparently this school recognized BAs from schools located across the United States in the past, because I've seen great reviews for the program by people who received their BAs in New York, as well as other sections of the U.S. Ironically, the HUX faculty includes one member who received his BA from Northwestern. Seriously, these people are not bright. One of the office staffers told me proudly that the Western Regional Accreditation board is part of the U.S. Department of Education. I told her that all of the regional accreditation boards are part of the U.S. Department of Education. The HUX program appears to be an interesting program, and for someone who is nearing retirement, but is willing to pay for her education out-of-pocket, the price was right. The office staff, however appear to be an obstacle that cannot be overcome. In short, American Public University offers a fully-online Master's degree in Humanities, and this program is recognized as one of the leading online Humanities programs in the U.S. The choice seems clear.

I am a former college professor who has returned to get a master's in a completely different field. My first school was a very expensive, highly-rated private university. CSU-HUX actually exceeds the personal attention and academic standards of that private school. The professors take an acute interest in the intellectual development, as true educators should...they're not just interested in grading papers and returning them. My only suggestion is that sometimes the registration process is confusing if you are a veteran because of overlapping deadlines and lack of coordination (sometimes requiring multiple registration efforts), but other than that, this is a school that I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to develop his or her mind beyond the textbooks. Library resources are excellent and overall technology is very good.

I am in the process of completing my MA in Humanities, with an emphasis in literature, through the HUX program. I have been very satisfied with the program. My instructors have been accessible, the course work has been rigorous, and the support from the HUX office has been outstanding. All of my questions have been answered promptly, and the head of the program, personally answered some questions for me. A great value- a hidden gem, really in the world of online learning.
