For people who may be a few college credits short, a cable channel is offering what it’s calling the first “network-branded online course for college credit.” The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the program is being offered by History.

The network is working with University of Oklahoma to offer a course called “United States, 1865 to the Present,” which will cover topics including the Gilded Age and the two World Wars, the story notes. The 16-week course will be taught by University of Oklahoma Professor Steve Gillon, who also serves as History’s “scholar-in-residence,” the story adds.

Students will be able to receive credit if they pay $500 in tuition, or can take the class for $250 and receive no credit.
