What degree do you have in terms of formal education?

  1. I know it's a stupid question, but I have to ask. Does having so many degrees help you in your career progression, or do you just like studying?

  2. Bachelor of Arts. Majored in English, minored in History. I was supposed to do a teaching degree afterwards but ended up landing my dream job with horses. I can always go back when I’m older 😝

  3. I had to take 2 semesters of chem in undergrad. I am in awe of people who did that and went "you know what? this was a good time I am going to keep going." All my other STEM flavor coursework I did well at, but I cannot fathom how you chem folks survive. Serious respect.

  4. Bachelors in Social & Behavioral Science - Law undergrad. I was a high school drop out, dropped out 2 weeks into my sophomore year. Sat around and got in some trouble then got my GED and technically graduated a year early. Then I did shit for 10 years got pregnant and went to community college. I got my associates, raised kids, got bored and went back to school 15 years later. I just got my bachelors this summer. I’m thinking I’m going to study for the LSAT and see how I do. I may just go all the way, who knows?!

  7. Damn, that's freaking impressive. Any advice for the AI curious (but definitely NOT qualified) when explaining to people that things like GPT-3 or the new Google AI are not in fact sentient? That one news article a few months ago about the Google employee claiming sentience has birthed so much misinformation it's crazy.

  9. Bachelor of Education (Primary Specialisation) 1/3 of the way through my engineering and physio degrees too.

  30. I have an AAS in General business. Most of my classes were food service oriented, but I didn’t want to waste more money on the few classes required for the food service management designation when I wasn’t planning on staying in the field any longer. It took me 4 yrs of classes with a 4 yr break where I was working 60+ hr weeks to get that 2 yr degree lmao It always cracks me up to think it took me 8 years to get it… but here I am still working the same crappy job while scrambling to make ends meet, so it’s really not surprising that I lack motivation. The field I want to go into requires more schooling, time, money, licensing than I’m willing to put in at this time, not to mention that it’s competitive and there aren’t a lot of opportunities available in my area. I can’t just take my kid and move, so I’m tied to the area for the foreseeable future. My baby has spurred me to action though and I’m on the hunt for a new job. Wfh is looking really good, but plenty of those jobs expect a bachelor’s or higher which blows my mind! It might be time to go back to school

  31. Some college in Psychology and Media Studies, then Covid happened and I’m horrible with learning via videos. So I said f*ck it.

  32. Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. Graduated with honors. Majored in Animal Science, minored in Human Animal Interaction and Chemistry.

  33. AA in criminal justice. Bachelor's of Science in criminal justice with an emphasis on crime and criminal behavior. Certificate in Forensic Psychology.

  34. BA in Communications. I went back to school when my oldest was a year old and was pregnant with my second. My marriage was starting to show some cracks in it and that really motivated me to finish school. It took two years to finish and we ended up separating my last semester. That degree let me get a good job that helped support me and the kids when I was a single parent. It was the best choice I ever made.
