wait wait wait...am I the only "adult" here with something less than a 4 year degree?

If it makes you feel any better, I probably didn't deserve the plaque and was PRETTY tipsy at the graduation ceremony. Smiley
it does! Smiley

(and I don't feel bad about it at all...quite the contrary actually.  Glad I didn't waste my time and money and avoided the misery sitting in a classroom is....not to mention homework, studying for sh**t that doesn't interest me, etc)

     People make the mistake of supposing that college is something everyone should do just because. If you are following a career path that doesn't require college, skipping out on it is perfectly fine. My best friend is a contractor, and he really doesn't need any kind of a degree for his career. If anything it's probably deleterious to him to spend 4 years getting a BA he will never use when he could spend that time plying his trade instead.

When I was actually in school, I had no real major, but....

Certificate in TV/Radio Broadcasting, Connecticut School Of Broadcasting, Palm Beach Gardens FL (2001)

Mass Communications, Broward College, Davie FL
Political Science, Broward College, Davie FL

I also took a couple of Psychology courses at the local community college.  Would've loved to study it further, but....I ran out of money.  Sad

BTW, if you're ever looking to go to school to learn about broadcasting, DO NOT go to CSB (Connecticut School Of Broadcasting).  They promised me that they'd be able to get me a radio gig, and within six months from graduation too.  However....it's now sixteen years later, and I have yet to find a major job in radio broadcasting.  CSB is a waste of money....if you really want to take up broadcasting, you're better off going to a local college.  Sad

I have a BS in chemistry with a math minor. I have also passed three actuarial exams. I was only a couple of classes away from also getting a BS or BA in math. I was a year away from my MA in secondary education but dropped out to take my present job.

No plans to pursue any further degree at this time. Still trying to pay off the one i have.

I was not anticipating Mr. Reactionary to introduce 55 pieces of legislation in the South over the past week, which is negating the rise in unemployment that should result from Irma.

I'll be graduating from my university this summer with a BA in Sociology and a minor in Cultural Anthropology. I'm still trying to decide between simply entering the workforce (although that would rely more heavily on my work experience than actual college education due to my degree, which is upsetting) or continuing my education onto the graduate level. Should I pursue the latter, I'm not even certain if an MA in Sociology would be worth the expense or if another related field would be preferable. So I have some big decisions to make soon.

B.A. in Political Science
Minor in International Studies

Some of the more interesting Poli Sci Classes I took:
- Special Interest Groups & Lobbying
- Intro to Comparative Politics (Was an intro class but really got into intl politics because of it)
- International Law (an undergrad class, for some reason, but not complaining...easily one of my favorite classes)
- Economic Public Policy
- Public Opinion and Media
- International Political Economy
- My thesis class was basically a form of Mock Congress but on a much more detailed policy level.

In My Minor:
- Post-WW2 Europe (Poland, Hungary, Czechia/Slovakia, Former Yugoslavia countries, West/East Germany etc...)
- Russian and Post-USSR Politics (I took this class around the time Crimea was invaded; also counted as a class for my major)
- Russian History: 1900-Current

General Courses/Electives:
- Intro to Public Relations (easy class, great professor and great community in that class. honored to have been one of this prof's last students before he retired(
- Basketball (because my team won the "championship" #priorities)
- Short Stories
- Short Stories/Novels
- World Religions (prof was a blowhard who knew nothing about Judaism or Christianity but learned a lot about eastern religions)

Assuming the paperwork goes through, I'll have a BA in Political Science and Criminal Justice Studies, Honors Program in May. Owing to my double major and decision to use up 9 of my credits on graduate classes, I have few super-interesting electives.

Among my more interesting classes:
-Sociology of Deviant Behavior
-Criminology & Penology
-International Relations
-Violence, Justice, & Reconciliation (political theory class that touched on the role of violence; introduced me to Hegel)
-Political Radicalism (I'm actually taking this as a 2-credit directed study under a cockamamie title I made up)
-Honors Thesis (just completed my defense, it was an intense and immersive experience)

-Roots of 21st Century Conflict (my first graduate class was sadly a directed study owing to a scheduling conflict)
