I have a BS in Marine Biology and a MS in Biological Oceanography.

THere are a ton of academic and government jobs I could have gone with (I was in school for my PhD when I decided I only wanted my Masters), but I decided that since my specialty was marine microbiology, I could easily transition into drug development. Now, I work for a company that is developing new antibiotics for drug resistant bacteria. I love that it is still interesting and makes a difference!

I’m working towards my BA in Psychology. I plan to continue to to get my Master’s or PsyD, probably in Clinical Psychology. 

With that, I can work as a counselor for the public or private sector. 

I plan to work in counseling, although I’m not sure what field yet. Eventually I would love to do Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, but it’s not practical monetarily so I’ll be getting experience elsewhere.

I have a BA in Communication Sciences and Disorders, which, like juliaelizabeth, qualified me to go to grad school in either Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. 

In a few weeks, I’ll get my Masters in Audiology. Which doesn’t qualify me to do jack. (it’s a formality). 

This time next year, I’ll receive my Doctor of Audiology, which will finally allow me to be a practicing audiologist. 


My dream job would be an audiologist that gets paid millions of dollars. 🙂

I have an AAS in Visual Design, BS in Computer Art, and halfway through my MS in Information, Design and Technology.

There aren’t too many jobs that you can do with this degree…you can design websites, print publications, or 3D animations. Or, you could work in just about any position and use it as a strength in designing marketing materials!

Luckily, I landed an amazing internship in the college’s web development office, and soon after graduation was offered a full time job with the title Web Coordinator. Basically, I maintain the college’s online presence and support all administrative offices at the college with their sites. My MS will allow my to move up the chain of command and secure a job for my future since just about anyone can design a website these days 🙂

I have an undergrad degree in Accounting and I am working on my MBA.  I can work in a company doing accounting or finance work or I can work in the public accounting field.  I was working in public accounting before we moved but right now I’m unemployed.  I’m not sure what I want to do in the future, either work for a company or possibly own my own business.

I have a BA in Spanish and Theatre and a Masters in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.  I guess that means I can act (and be really poor) or translate (which I do) or teach Spanish and ESL (which I also do).

My dream job would be as a zoologist or vet… I’m a little off base with my current degrees!  Goods news is Fiance is really supportive of that dream, so one day when we live close enough to a vet school, it’s on!

What is your degree in?  BBA Marketing

What can you actually do with it?  there’s a lot you can do with it, I really only want to do advertising though.  Honestly the degree is just a piece of paper though, marketing classes were always just a list of vocabulary to study.  My day to day job is very different than that, lots of numbers and strategic thinking.

What do you actually currently do with it? work in media planning (advertising) for an automotive client.

What is your dream job?  I want to be Samantha Brown on the travel channel…I guess that would be a travel journalist?  She has a sweet job, travel for free and make a 30 minute program about it.

Well, I have my B.S in Kinesiology and my masters in Library Science.  I am qualified to work in academic and medical libraries; though I am just getting started in the profession (I just finished my course work!)

My dream job would be to be working as a medical librarian in a university setting.

I am so impressed with the number of technical degrees / fields that people have written about in this thread! As a civil engineer, I often feel very lonely, surrounded by lots of guys!  It’s awesome to see the variety of interests that my fellow bee-keepers have.  That said,

Degree: BS Civil Engineering, Masters in Planning

Do with it: Lots. Many of my engineering classmates went to law school (patent law), business school, planning school, or just dove straight into the technical design stuff. There’s so many fields within civil engineering that you can chose from: water, transportation, structures, buildings, etc., and so many different ways to be involved: at the initial planning stages, when the politicians are throwing around ideas; at the design stages, when all those nebulous thoughts coalesce into something that can actually be built; in the construction phase, to see the final product; in the financing side, where you try to figure out how to build something with little public funding… it’s great to have options!

Currently do with it: Right now I am studying all of the proposed transportation projects in LA County to find ones that could be built faster/cheaper if they were privately financed.  Last year I worked in Hawaii designing a rail system.

Dream job:  I love what I do – but I’d also love to develop a brand and manage it for an international engineering/architecture company. So many of the companies I work with have brands in serious need of help!!!

1.) I have a Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Ultrasound

2.) As you can tell, my degree is very specialized, but here’s what I can do with it: work in a hospital or clinic performing ultrasound exams, teach ultrasound at a university that has a program, work for companies (Phillips, GE, etc) that make ultrasound machines, or sell the machines.

3.) I currently work at a pediatric hospital doing ultrasound exams and I love it.

4.) My dream job (in the field of ultrasound, anyway) is to eventually end up teaching ultrasound at the university I attended, although I don’t want to do that until I’ve been working in a clinical setting for at least 5 years.

Degree: Working on my bach. in Psychology (done in December!!!)

What to do: Hmmm…I’m still trying to figure that out. Less than a year to get that figured out. :/ I’m thinking I might get my masters in special education and work in the school district.

Current: I’m a student still so I’m working part time at a bank as a teller (NOT going to do that forever!) and waiting for graduation!

Dream: I guess what my absolute main goal is to make sure I can work with kids eventually, who knows what I’ll do with it though.


Can you tell I’m having issues figuring out my plan? I’ve been having a bit of a crisis lately.

BA in Visual Arts (concentrated on print Photography)


Don’t use it now.  And since my school didn’t offer any digital classes at my campus I studied large format print photography (think old school camera the drape behind it).  I loved it but nope, I don’t use it!

Dream job changes daily.  Today’s *dream* job is being an author with a teeny tiny photography business that I do for fun.  Hopefully I’ll be able to buy a decent camera after the wedding to at least try to make part B happen. 

EDIT: (I didn’t fully answer the question).  Visual Arts majors can, start their own businesses, work in a creative department in whatever company would need it (advertising, marketing, music, and so on),  work for magazines, become certified to teach art, and go on to study art therapy. 

I don’t use my major–I’m in administrative assistant.  I had to take a job for the pay bc of my student loans.  Creative jobs don’t really pay all that great when you’re starting out.
