Hi – my degree is a BA in English Literature and Writing. I also have an MBA with a focus in marketing. I use my degrees but it’s loose. I’m a senior manager at a large regional bank in the US. Communicating, influencing, strategic thinking and articulation etc.

I have a BSc, MSc and PhD, and I majored in anatomy and neuroendocrinology. I am a researcher at a medical school, and while the topic of my research is slightly different now, theres a lot of overlap.

Yes! I have a BSc and MD, and am a doctor.

With your science degree, would it be possible to go to school to be an early learning science educator/ ambassador e.g. working in a science museum etc

I always wanted to be a writer and so I didn’t feel I needed to go to university but my dad basically forced me. I kept getting told to do something “practical” so I chose environmental management, which ended up being rather non-practical because it was so difficult to get a job. 

So I am a writer, lol. I write about architecture and sustainability 🙂 I’ve had jobs writing about all kinds of things though. My ultimate goal is to publish a novel. Currently working on that!

candy11 :  I majored in education, but I always knew it wasn’t quite for me. Now I’m finishing up my Master’s in child and family sciences, and fingers crossed I’m going to get an internship to become a child life specialist.

Do you know what it is you’re wanting to do with preschoolers? Unfortunately there is really no pay there. Preschool teachers are normally around minimum wage. You could potentially earn the certification that allows you to run a daycare, but that is more along the lines of business. Are you open to working with school age kids? You could be a science teacher, work in a rec center, do a science education program. Or start an in-home daycare, which is pretty tricky but possible.

I have a BS and MS in Kinesiology, I am now working on my doctor of physical therapy. My previous degrees directly relate to what I’m now working on. I’d be SOL if I wasn’t in school right now because I wouldn’t want to do any other career!

I have BAs in English, Classics, and Latin, and a MAT in secondary Latin teaching. I taught Latin for a few years. Now I’m at home with my son. I don’t think I’ll go back to teaching. The time commitment was nuts and the commute was unsustainable.
