    For all you college kids who are spending four-ish years of your life attempting to learn stuff and come out with a degree, what are you studying? And for people out of college, what did you study? I'm a double major in English and Psychology, and I may try to pull the Spanish minor if I can fit it in.

    Design and Technology, but I'm transferring into Design and Management. Technology doesn't interest me so much anymore :cool:.

    Nice, I'm still in my 2nd year. It's still a long way to go! Especially in such a lame university :mad:

    It gets better as you go on (the subjects become more interesting.)

    Joke: for the arts students

    Q: What's the difference between an Arts graduate and a large Pizza?

    Cheers
    Jordan

    A: a Large pizza can feed a family of four:) (sorry for any hard feelings)

    Ha, that's a pretty good one. Of course I am working towards a B.A., but I'm gonna go to Law School eventually so it's not as applicable.

    I am on a third year of Advertising Design. I have a big interest in Digital Imaging though. I am trying to master PhotoShop and become a pixel-pusher. :D

    I have an Associate of Applied Science in Computer and Information Systems Programming. I'm currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, and will eventually go back for a Master's and possible a Ph.D..

    Masters is likely to be in AI, not sure about the Ph.D..

    Computer Science.

    I've changed my major twice now...was originally pre-med, then art/design...and after realizing that no matter how much I deny it, I'm a geek...so I switched to what I should have started with ;)

    Started with mechanical engineering but found that didn't quite suit me - not enough people contact. So, am now studying medicine and psychology plus geography on the side to keep things interesting (and work out where the hell I am). Final goal: psychiatrist. :)

    Thanks. :)

    To be honest, I just want a couch in my office. Coolness. :D


    I didn't pick you as a political scientist, you're not provocative enough. :p

    Joke.

    I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1.) Business Administration and 2.) Design Arts with an emphasis in Visual Communication, from Drury University in Springfield, MO.

    If I had my way (i.e. if I wasn't too far in debt already) I would have gotten my Master's in Graphic Design as well, even though I've been told it's not worth it from a cost/benefit ratio...I'd like to have it for me.

    A couch in an office is always a must. :D

    As far as being a political scientist, I am probably going to enter into business.
    Oh well, political science is an interesting field to study. :)

    I started out in Business Administration, went abroad for a semester and really learned how much of the crap i was learning was false(We actually did an operations management equation to determine which country provided the cheapest outsourcing programs) so i switched to Environmental Studies when i returned.

    I'm now a super-senior doing a dual major in Environmental Studies and Business Administration.
