I wanted to know which would be a better option: Pursuing an ALB (BA) from Harvard Extension School or going to a community college for two years and then attempting to transfer to a four-year univeristy.
I am considering going to a Mass. community college like Middlesex Community College or Bunker Hill Community College and then transfering into UMass or maybe even Haravrd.
Assuming I can't transfer into Harvard, what's going to get me a job: A BA from Harvard Extension School or a BA from UMass (Amherst, Lowell, or Boston?)?
I don't care about of the facilities in each place or an individual's experience WHILE STUDYING THERE- I care about what employers think of each degree and how they treat you AFTER GRADUATION.
All said and done - the real world really is what matters.
Harvard Extension School and Harvard University are NOT the same thing. Would an employer consider an HES degree or would I be better of with something from UMass Boston?
If it helps, I want to major either in History of Mass Communications and minor in Creative Writing.
