So I am middle aged adult looking into going back to school. I need help figureing out what degree would be best for me. I love computers. I love making spreadsheets, brochures, word documents, presentations and invitations. I’m the person my office goes to to fix their computers or documents. What degree direction should I lean towards?
Do you already have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than computers? If so many colleges offer master’s degrees in computer science for such students. For example Northeastern:
If you do not have a bachelor’s degree you could start studying computer science at a community college.
I have no degree. I have 43 credit hours from 15years ago. I dropped out of college. I can only promote 2 more spots in my current office job and they don’t make much more than I do. I want to make more money so I figured going back to school would be my only option.
Many universities offer degree completion programs for students who have a lot of old credits like you do. They will evaluate those and your “life experience”. since then. Most such programs can be completed in 2 years or less full time equivalent. You would major in CS.
