    I'm currently working on my BA in Womens Studies with a minor in History. Once I'm done with that I'll start to work on my MA in History.

    What about you, do you hold any higher education degrees? :)

    Associate in Religious Education.

    Bachelor of Science in Computer Management Systems. Really proud of this one....started college at age 30, single mom with 2 small children (ages 2 & 6) and worked as a legal secretary all the way through. Made it to the finish line 5 years later and it has been sooooo worth it.

    One day.... maybe an MBA.

    I have:
    BS - Chemistry, Biology, minored in Physics
    BA - Spanish, Education
    CEAS (Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing)
    Teacher of ESL (English as a Second Language) Certificate
    Certified Bilingual Teacher
    Teacher of the Handicapped
    Masters in Education

    working on my Supervisors certificate, then Principals cert.

    (for the record, I'm 28. Graduated HS at just 16, finished up the Chem/Bio when I was 19, but changed my mind in what I wanted to do, so when I transferred Universities I was granted 2 degrees, the one for all the science credits I had, and the second for Spanish/Education!)

    Then, I think I'm done.

    BS - Registered nurse with BSN
    BA in Criminal Justice.

    I started college at 16 and also had a double degree available with extra courses I took. I would go back to school in a minute just to learn. There is a college in Wetherford that has quilting classes now. That's a thought.

    WEnt back and got my Masters in Nursing. Wish I stuck with it but change courses in my life.
    University of TExas @ Arlington.
    Texas HEalth SCience School of Nursing on campus.

    Then again I would give this all up for more common sense and not book smarts. LOL

    AD in Accounting plus extended courses taken while working in banking; probably have a full Accounting Degree if I checked. Now I'm retired (well on SS Disability) but I still do accounting projects ever once in a while!
