Isn't a Computer Science degree usually a BS and not a BA?

You're right about the fact that damagement doesn't care much about what the degree was in. It's just a crazy rite of passage sometimes.

Montana State offers masters and doctorates in computer science and I can rent out a room in the basement. :-) A few folks around here are going for the computer science M.S. Or if you're looking for a career change I understand the programs in mining, geology, and paleantology are quite good. Then there's the Agricultural Science track. Just met a cowboy the other day who is getting his degree in "Range Management." :-)

I don't have any degree higher than a plain BA. It hasn't made a difference as far as I can see, however, I have gone on interviews where they asked if I had a college degree. They didn't seem to care WHAT the degree was in (mine as it happens IS in Computer Science).

I started an MBA program. And realized that it would push me towards the management track (I hope I'd never turn into damagement), where I didn't want to be.

Someday I'll go back to school, perhaps for another degree, perhaps not. Definitely for something I'm interested in as opposed to something just to earn money
