With no replies and seeing posts at “What type of job do you have guys?” - https://forum.gaytorrent.ru/index.php?topic=33055.0

I assume many of the occupations mentioned do require some type of college degree, and am quite surprised having no responses at “…your alma mater” - https://forum.gaytorrent.ru/index.php?topic=44387.msg231269#msg231269

…my topic regarding such, given that most people--myself included--do take some pride in having earned one.

Walk into practically any professional establishment (offices of doctors and lawyers, being good examples) and you’ll find, proudly displayed among other such accolades, those college credentials.

Thinking the problem with my original post might be with the “where” in terms of one’s privacy, I decided to change the focus of the topic, making “where” less invasive.

Now, instead of “where” did you get yours…”where” do you stand regarding them--in other words…

What academic degree do you have?

Maybe you’re working towards one--a first, or another to add to your résumé.

Perhaps you’re just good without one.

So, when it comes to Academic Degrees, where are you?

Associate
Bachelor
Master
Doctoral
“Experience-based”

“Experience-based degrees are professional degrees offered…where college credits are given to recipients for certain years of practical life experience…in different countries based on their educational standards.” - Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classification_of_Academic_Degrees

(Multiple votes allowed so vote accordingly to what fits your situation--got two Bachelor Degrees, select "Multiple Bachelor", an Associate and Bachelor, then one for each, and so on. Of course, still feel free to give a shout out to your alma mater!--GO BEARS!)

Somewhat ironic, with a BA in Psychology from Cal, along with a BFA in Interior Design--my last employment positions were "caterer" (food deliverer) for Boston Market, and personal attendant for a couple of guys--a paraplegic, and a quadriplegic--never having used the Psych degree, and spending maybe 5 years tops in the design and architecture fields.

Really? Wow!

True, it is a source of pride.

However, in my opinion, it also suggests a level of competence of the bearer.

Not sure where the certificate is these day, but I have a BSc in Applied Chemistry. Thought about going further, but then the need for money came in to play so that was that  Grin

I have an MBA from the university of Phoenix but I rarely mention it. I find I get more respect from having a Bachlor's degree in Economics. I'd reccomend at the very least getting a bachlor's degree and not to bother with Economics as they really only care if you have a PHD otherwise it's virtually worthless. Communications is a good field of study that incorporates quite a bit of career paths so you'd do well to get a degree in that.

Had a Diploma, then upgraded it to Bachelor in Computer. Used to be really proud about it, but not anymore. When people who don't have one can earn much higher than you, and even ends up in a higher position, that says a lot, right? Which is the reason why I'm not considering a Master degree.

If I were given scholarship to take one abroad though, I'd gladly take it. Especially in other non-Computing major like Art, Music, Psychology, etc, or Experience-Based like you said. For the cultural and social experience, nothing more. Definitely won't be taking one in my home country, because the title no longer have 'good' reputations here. It's not prestigious anymore, and there's a notion that one can easily 'buy' said degree anyway.

Have an MSc (Forensic Anthropology) myself, and am aiming to go down the doctoral root someday.

Went to San Jose State College out of the Navy.  While i had done fairly well before, the huge pile of books i had to read was whelming and i fell badly behind, ending 1 1/2 years with F, D, D, C, C

I received a lovely letter from the school saying, "Don't use any of our facilities."

Went on, using my electronic talents to have a wonderful job at UC Berkeley as a laboratory repair technician.

MD and Research degree.

Well, sometimes when you study something for six to eight years straight (depending on the country), you might want to display it on your wall  Wink

Not sure where the certificate is these day...

Same here. Sad

Looking into replacements recently revealed:

1. Costs $60.
2. Associated official signatures are not current to the original diploma, instead being those of the current officials at the present time.
3. Unsure of the exact name as it appears on the original means the replacement could end up bearing a different name from that of the original.
4. Along an edge of the new document will be a (potentially unsightly) "replacement" notation.

With all of that going against it, I'll definitely make a point to search diligently for the original before opting to settle for the replacement.

Well, I have two BS degree. One is Bachelor of Science in Physics and the other is Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering. I earned my MS in medical physics in University of Santo Thomas and I'm currently working at a hospital near the campus where I earned my MS. I'm planning to take my PhD in biomedical physics but nah laugh
