Would a computer science degree from a smaller, liberal arts college (Otterbein College) be worth it?1holli2012-10-04 22:44:03
Hello. A couple of years ago I graduated from Otterbein College , a small private college in Columbus , OH with a BS in Psychology . Shortly after I went to college briefly before deciding it was not for me . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I've been thinking about going back to school for computer science BSIN so it could become a software engineer ( programming in graduate school raised my interest in the field ) and would be both easy and relatively fast for me return to my alma mater , but I'm a little worried about a technical degree from a university (quite strong ) liberal arts . Employerss I look down on it ? The school lists alumni working for Battelle , the Department of Defense and other organizations , so it seems fine, but I'm still a little paranoid .
Help I made mistake of going to college, now what can I do with a liberal arts and science associate degree?0) ㄣ flowers. 2012-11-04 21:25:16
I was told go to college after being brainwashed by parents teachers society this that.... blah blah use the first two years to learn about your interests. CHeaaya right. Although its a worthless general degree you still have to like pick a category. So I went along with liberal arts and science since I was working towards a psychology degree. I was told with 60 college credits I could become a substitute teacher. I guess the joke is on me. I did not take any early childhood courses so whose gonna want to look at my resume. All I have is volunteering at a couple of child's home, volunteering to do landscaping/gardening, volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters, volunteering to feed people in Haiti. Few jobs in retail. I worked for the 2010 Census. All this gets me nowhere. I need to see the light. :( ;( :(
Should I go back to college and get a Second Bachelor's degree in Computer Science?2deyela2012-10-23 22:21:04
Hi all ! I have an AAS degree in Computer Systems and a BA in Psychology . Still, I 'm debating whether or not to return to college to earn a bachelor's degree in Computer Second . I would take one year (two semesters ) to do it because I have a degree . Also I have the option to go back to school and get a master's degree in computer science , but it would be more expensive to do and it would take me 1 1/2 to 2 years to get that degree . I have 28, single , never been married , I have no children , no responsibilities. I 'm getting older and I would like to work for the U.S. federal government in a field of IT as a career working for a lifetime. The economy is very bad at the moment with little jobs still available , so I'm also thinking now would be a good time to do it anyway . You think I should go back to school and do it? Should I go back to college and get a degree in Computer Science II ? What do you think I should do? Any response would be appreciated . Thank you !

Psychology at undergraduate level at a liberal arts college then Law?1Zenobia2012-10-05 01:03:02
Hello , MedlinePlus I am very interested in the legal field , and also to study in the U.S. . But the system of the U.S. is such that it can only have professional degrees ( such as law, medicine, etc ) at the master . So I was planning on taking Psychology ( in a liberal arts college ) and then pass the law after that. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus What do you think of this route? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It is a bit worrying cos I heard that psychology has a lot of possibilities ( even worse liberal arts degree - or am I wrong ? ) , And if they do for a course of law ( in one of these universities : Harvard , Michigan , New York U , Columbia ) , I will not be able to practice in Singapore . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Can anyone suggest a better undergraduate study ( with better prospects ? ) , Which does not include physical / chemical / bio - take years has made me sick of it (I know for a fact that I do not want that science - not me mind a bit though. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus thanks
Should I go to a large university or a small liberal arts college?0Evi2012-10-22 11:40:32
I'm pretty chill and relaxed and not really part of both . The university is known for being a party school . MedlinePlus I go to a private liberal arts school high , and I'm pretty used to the liberal style of teaching , the wide range of classes offered , and practical approach in learning . MedlinePlus Classes at the college of liberal arts are quite small , and the teachers all know my name. MedlinePlus The college classes is very large and rarely taught by real teachers , but SBP . MedlinePlus But my brother is going to college and so do many of my friends . MedlinePlus I spend almost every weekend there and I know the campus very well . MedlinePlus Both schools offer a psychology program is bigger than what they want to specialize in. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I'm not sure what to do . MedlinePlus I think I'll feel more comfortable in the liberal arts college . MedlinePlus But I know all about the university and students and campus . MedlinePlus What do you think ?
