Edumacation And Enlearnment
« on: September 02, 2011, 12:56:30 AM »
During my time on the forum, I've noticed that we've got forumites with a wide variety of careers and educational backgrounds that have come up in random conversations, ranging from high school to a gazillion doctoral degrees in superspecificethnolinguistics (*cough, cough, Shecky, cough, cough*).  So, I thought it'd be interesting to see what sorts of educational backgrounds folks have.  I'll kick it off:

I got a triple major for my Bachelor's--History, Political Science, and Criminal Justice.  I've also got a Masters of Business Administration, and am considering a Masters in Strategy/Innovation/something of that nature in a few years.

Come December I'll have a BA in Psychology and then I'm going to move on and get an MFA in Professional Writing.

I have a doctorate in biology and I have also a professor title (I don't know how it translate to USA system. It would be a college degree in biology teaching)

I'm working on my Psych degree. I was close to getting a degree in Veterinarian Medicine but I let that go.
Instead of a denarian. I got a copper piece. Now I'm host to the fallen one known as Cheapassius.

I have a high school diploma!...  I'm nearing the end of a year's worth of college towards a networking degree, and I'll be taking cert tests come October, hopefully.

M.S. in biology.  I've mainly concentrated on wildlife/ecology, but I have fairly broad training.

Once I get a bit more settled here I want to start looking more in earnest into some GIS training.

I have a BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and am currently getting my Masters of Applied Science:  Chemistry.

EDIT:  I have no desire to ever get a Ph.D!  I'm sooooo done with school after I've completed this.  I like learning, and love doing research, but I am ready to get my life started dammit!  :D

I was never very interested in school (theoretically yes, in terms of the classes/professors I actually had not so much). 

But I still managed a BA in Political Science and an AA in Speech Communications.

In August, I'll have both B'Tech and M'Tech degrees in Electrical Engineering. I'm still considering if I really want an MS or PhD or even an MBA in the future.

Nothing wrong with that!  Up until my parents', nobody in their families ever went to college.

I have a BA in "Liberal Studies" which in California is the prelude to getting a teaching
certificate.  I had no interest in being a teacher and ended up in that course due to
being hijacked by my adviser. ::) My minor was Anthro and I'd only need one more class for a
BS in that.

Double BA's in Psychology and Criminal Justice with double minor's in Community Health and Women's Studies.  I started in nursing but bailed on that ( I am way too obnoxiously independent to play well with others on a health care team, as I found out after a year of clinicals )

All of which I do precisely diddly with  ;)  Well, unless you count all the Psych involved with raising kids, volunteering on several Boards for local stuff and attempting not to bop my clients over the head when they want the impossible  ;D
