OK, bare with me as I try to make this brief its a little complex.
Current Education: BS in Political Science (2007)
MA in Theological Studies (2011)
Work Experience: Data Analyst (i.e., I make lots of reports for management)
Goal: PhD in Church History or Systematic Theology; professorate
So, now to my question. With there being very, very few jobs as a professor in a seminary, I am debating about getting some training in an IT related field to supplement income or act as a backup.
What type of education/training do employers look for when hiring a database administrator or web developer? those are my two interests.
Some seem satisfied with an A.A. degree from a technical college; others want a bachelors in CS or MIS. I am currently looking at a BASc degree in informational technology infrastructure from a very reputable school nearby that is in the college of continuing education. It takes a little from CS, IT, and MIS.
