Well this week I have been thinking that I might either go back and get my Masters in English or a second Bachelors degree in English.
I finished my first Bachelors degree in the low paying, no way to work from home field of Social Work. I have found it is not for me and the only way to make decent money in the field is to move, or get a Masters.
I have signed up with a college that offers a few non-credit online classes cheap. This will help me remember what school is like and help me decide what I want to do. Several colleges offer English programs online, but if I want my masters I would go back to the University I graduated from because it would be easier to figure out what courses I needed.
With an English degree I will be able to teach, write for a paper or magazine, or land some freelance jobs. I could actually get a better social work position as well. I just don't know that I want to study again.
I called and then checked the prices for a masters program at the University of Toledo where I graduated. It will be 1500 dollars per class. I can't afford that it is around 1000 per class or less for a 2nd Bachelors degree.
