    I have my B.A. in Psychology and Spanish. I am half way through my Master’s in Public Administration, but will likely not finish it. My last employer paid for the M.A. in Public Admin, and then I moved on to my new job. My current employer will pay for a graduate degree if it is in Education. I am considering starting my Master’s in Educational Psychology within the next year.

    I have two BS degrees. I was pre-med all throughout college so only having a BS isn’t what I planned at all. When the time came I just couldn’t make the committment though and I’m happy with my choice.

     

    Honestly it was really hard for me to decide what to study in college so the thought of going back to further my education is not appealing. I still have no idea what I would pursue! In my current job a higher degree wouldn’t matter at this point in terms of salary.

    I’m an analyst for the Department of Defense

    I have a BA in English but I work as a marketing specialist for a real estate company. I am considering going back to school in the next few years for a Master’s but I don’t know what I would study.

    I have a BS, but I plan on going back to grad school. I’ve tried once before, but in my field the PI has to have funding to take on a student, and no one has had funding lately, so even though I was accepted I couldn’t go.

    Right now I only have my HS Diploma but that’s because I got a great full time job right out of high school. I am a Human Resouces Specialist now making pretty good money so I have yet to go to school. Once I decide what I really want to do I’ll go get my degree but as of right now, I can’t find any good reason to put myself in debt when I don’t know what degree I want.

    If public schools start doing away with reading specialists, I might go back to get my PhD in Children’s Literature…and…I dunno…write?  It’s the only subject I could see myself wanting to study in depth.  

     

    The problem is that the only program I want to attend is in Columbus, Ohio.  Not exactly around the corner.  

     

    Oh, I have a BA in history and an MSEd in literacy.

    BA in Spanish and I’m working towards an MS global education. I work at an English as a Second Language School. I’m so afraid of writing my thesis! It seems intimidating

    Have a BS – hoping to go back for Master’s in UX/UI design here soon. Unfortunately, my Army reserve Unit has other thoughts…anyways I will be headed to finish that up in the next year or two.

    BS in Elementary Education, and Masters in Special Education. I’m planning to go back to school perhaps next fall (right after I finish paying my student loan debt) to get another endorsement so I can move up a few lanes on the pay scale.
