I've begun a BA in History at Athabasca, just because.

This is great.

I would consider how much the economic value of the degree is to you.  Having been through university, i know that the majority of the dollar value of the degree is in the piece of paper you receive and what economic/career opportunities you can do with that.  The large majority of the actual knowledge obtained at the university in arts/social sciences disciplines is obtained through the books/articles you read, with lectures summarizing and expanding on it.  Anyone can obtain this knowledge for $10 in late fees at the library.  Course outlines (with the readings) are often posted online at different universities.  I've made a habit of picking up used textbooks here and there and learning on my own.

But if the 20-30k or whatnot for the degree is of value to you for whatever reasons you decide then that's great, wish you the best if you decide to sign up!
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
