Just curious to see what kind of education everyone has/plans on getting. Be sure to post your major/area of interest as well!

I can still spell "education" better than the OP.

But am no where near as highly educated as FayV.

:/ You completely left out the Honours degree between Bachelors and Masters. It's a separate postgraduate degree here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachelor's_degree#Southern_Africa

I've got an Honours degree in molecular and cell biology. Did my Bachelors degree in genetics and microbiology.

Edit: This would've been much more interesting as a public poll.

Art Fundimentals Certificate - Honours standing.
I was in an Applied Bachelors program for Illustration, but I had to leave after 2 years due to an ongoing illness that I'm still receiving treatment for.

Sometimes life happens, and you can't finish the program. And I still have the knowledge of what I've learned and can still apply it. ;)

Are associate degrees even used by anyone anymore? Anyway, I have a Bachelor's in Nuclear Radiological Engineering. I considered getting a Master's or Ph.D., but in all honesty I was and am tired of it. I had been taking classes year round (fall-spring-summer semesters) since the summer before I went into 9th grade all the way to the summer before my junior year of university.

Usually, most community colleges are only two-year schools which offer associates degrees. I know several people who have received those and haven't pursued further college because it "wasn't for them" or had things come up in their lives that kept them from going back, like having a kid or something to that effect.

Halfway through a bachelor's in biological anthropology. Planning to do a master's in forensic anthropology, then get my PhD.

Still in high school, thinking of going for a masters in history or astrophysics, or even a double masters in those two.

I'm just going to a community college for generals, I have no clue what I want to major in though. I'd go for game design but I'm far too stupid for that.

I'm getting one, stenographic judicial reporting. Although most folks end up taking 3-4 years to get their certification, because takes a while to get up to 225 WPM.

I wish more folks would consider the certificates and two-year degrees. My tech college releases information about the hiring/salary rates for its graduates, and a lot of the programs have some really nice statistics. Plus the education itself is a lot cheaper, so no major debt, or even no debt.

I'm currently attending a community college and am pursuing an associate's degree in accounting. I'm considering going after a bachelor's after that, but would just like to get as much as I can from this community college because I'm able to pay for it without going into debt.

As of now, my only plans are an associate's degree. But it's a vocational degree, so I can actually do something. More useful than a lot of Bachelor's degrees right now imo :V I'll only make $30-$50K doing CAD but good enough for me and better than starbucks :V Come back to me when the economy and job market aren't shit and I might explore other options...

I think I'm one of the few who doesn't care for going to college. :/
 
Graduated high school in 2010 with a scholarship for free community college, but I didn't want to go to college yet, and still am not wanting to go. I just don't think college is really for me; I can't think of what I'd want to study. And I think the scholarship has expired by now.

Totally ain't a single thing wrong with not going to college. I know several people who didn't and they're all pretty successful. One of them is rocking a BMW as an insurance salesman.

I'm in college pursuing a baccalaureate degree in Computer Science, but I'm thinking about either expanding it to Computer Engineering or changing to Chemical Engineering. /lolfreshman

EDIT: Fun fact: I'm at school right now, I have 3 finals in a row today, and I'm online right now because I just finished the first one with over an hour to spare. GF, Bio 1001.

That's really too bad. You may want to check to see because that opportunity is pretty important. College isn't the be all and end all, but it's a pity to waste free education because you aren't sure. Part of the point of college is finding what you hate least (It's an important phrase because it tells you what you can put up with)
When I started I was a biochem major wanting to cure aids, then I just moved to english, I picked up philosophy cause it was fun. In the end I discovered neuroethics.
My transcript shows it, I was average for my first two years then became an awesome student.

If the education is free, taking a few community courses to just see if you like it is one of the better things to do. Don't be scared of it.

Well if you are good at chemistry, Chemical Engineering has got some pretty awesome shit going on right now. One of the professors at my university developed a polymer that captures mercury from contaminated water, and glows when it does so. Another professor developed a molecule that glows bright as a flashlight when it comes into contact with certain types of cancer cells, making it possible to visually remove cancerous areas. Seems glowing things are popular right now.
