    Already have a BA in IS and history, doing an MA now in IR and Diplomacy.

    Though never really was satisfied with the arts and social sciences, I am probably going to do another BA in Accounting as soon as I am done.

    Starting a 2-year Associates program for a degree in Applied Science for Veterinary Technology. The curriculum gets you ready to take the test to be a certified technician, which can make you 15-22$/hr.

    After that, if i'm not feeling content with it, I'll probably take the rest of my prerequisites to get into vet school at State, which is basically a Biology degree (Bachelors) Although I may just get a different degree with the same prereqs to diversify.

    Then if I go to vet school I can get a Bachelor's in Veterinary Medicine - the curriculum of which allows you to prepare for the doctor's exam, if you chose. I probably won't - it more responsibility then I want.

    If I do that, and I become a doctor, it's another 4 years to specialize.

    So anywhere from 2-12ish years, depends on what I want.

    although if I become a vet and just do relief work (when veterinarians go on leave for illnesses of maternity, etc.) you make 75$/hr. that's buku.

    I'm aiming for a Masters in Graphic Design; maybe after that I'd like to get a bachelors degree in psychology or literature. There two subjects I'd love to expand and have under the belt.

    I have a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering with minors in math and japanese.

    I'm almost done with my M.S. in Biomedical Engineering with a focus on scaffolding and tissue engineering. I hope to obtain a Ph.D.

    Following this, I will look for a job in industry. While working, I'll probably take night classes to obtain my MBA.

    Obtained:
    B.S. in Biology with a Double Minor in Psychology and English.
    Masters in Environmental Science.

    ~Recently obtained my teaching certificate


    And I'm not really using either degree in my current line of work.

    I am contemplating going back to school.


    Isn't that an oxymoron?

    The whole purpose of obtaining a BA is to avoid the numerous math and science courses and focus more on humanities.

    MPhys in Theoretical Physics, currently being put to no use whatsoever in my job as a software consultant. But I'm enjoying that for the moment and will find some way to put the MPhys to use further down the line – thinking of a PhD in nuclear physics, and then onwards from there.

    I have my Bachelors degree in Anthropology, which I'm using as a lab assistant for my city's Archaeology and Technologies Lab. I also help to run our region's 3D imaging equipment for the cataloging of artifacts and often put in extra hours with the reconstruction programs, whenever our resident biological anthropologist gets called in as a forensics consultant.

    My second degree is in East Asian studies, and I would enjoy using it in an overseas job, where my linguistics background could come in handy. My initial impulse is to spend a year or two teaching English as a second language, since I have a minor in English and experience with teaching. But, anthropological positions of cultural mediation for international business dealings have also peaked my interest, especially since they are appearing in greater numbers these days.

    2012 hopefully I have my Law degree. What I'll do after than I do not know, people expect me to apply for a BVC or LPC but it seems like more stress. I'll probably take a year off then have a good think about what I want to do.

    Right now i'm a 2nd year Integrative Biology major and music minor. I'm planning on taking a year off before applying to Medschool, and if that doesn't workout i'll either go into research or become a physical therapist. Also interested in getting a masters in public health.

    Majoring in International Business with a 'marketing concentration'

    Minoring in Psychology and an "interest area" (somewhat similar to a minor) in Philosophy

    Bachelor's in art history. Which means.. that I probably won't be working in the field. :lmao Minor in regular ol' history. (Taking Development of Europe at the same time as courses on Medieval Art is super useful, btw.)

    I'm no longer sure, but I had thought about combining a major-of-choice (like linguistic/anthropological/humanities stuff) with library science (I'd have to go to grad school for that though, which is risky if the jobs disappear) and then get a position as a 'subject specialist' at an academic library.

    I'm getting my Bachelor's in Mathematics and then my Ph.D. in Linguistics with a focus on cultural development of the language. I haven't finished my B.S. so my focus could change.

    I honestly have changed my major about twenty times, but as of a few months ago, I am a PR / Advertising and Public Policy major (concentration in Urban Development). I may possibly have a Chemistry minor as well, 'cause I miss my sciences. Later, an MA in International Diplomacy. I was originally going to minor in Japanese but I would rather just take the JLPT.

    This is subject to change . . . story of my life.

    How are Linguistics and Math related? Why waste your time with something as useful as a BS in Math just to get a PhD in Linguistics later?

    And how can one "culturally develop" full flushed languages like the Asian and Arabic ones?

    ^ The logic behind linguistics is highly math oriented. Then there is statistics, naturally. And because I want to do Linguistics and be a professor and do research. I'm missing how I'm wasting time...I want to do what I want to do. I want to find a job I enjoy and then work more on my writing career.

    And I'm not going to "culturally develop" as you say. I want to study the development of the languages. If they weren't 'fully flushed' I couldn't do that.
