Main Question or Discussion Point

I currently work in a completly unrelated field and ma not interested in a career change. I graduated from UF with a bachelors and masters in management. There is still a huge void I am feeling these days that I never took my love for physics seriously enough. I would like to take some physics courses and possibly get a degree or certificate from some institution. Are there any accredited or non-accredited physics courses or degrees I can take completly online? If there are please email me directly with any information or respond here. Its obviously easier to get me at my personal email.

Uh, no. You sign up to a forum, you come here to read replies. That's the way it works. =S

I doubt there will be any good courses. A part of physics are labs. Those need to be done in groups and with materials. Kinda hard to do it over the net.

You can't do any of the natural sciences of engineering online. Too much of it involves labs. If you do find an online physics program it won't be accredited.

Yep. I think labs are almost as important as the classes. I know there would be some stuff I couldn't quite grasp during the lectures. Then I would make the lab the next day and see how obvious the material was.

I think most science majors would be not worth it to do online.
