Back to School

In an effort to break out of my rut, I have been researching going back to school. The degrees I am looking in to are limited. The reason being is that I know myself well enough – if I am not completed interested in what I am working on, I will become disinterested and not complete yet another task. I went online and looked for online colleges. My work schedule is pretty consistent and my work is my primary responsibility, I will have to resort to online. Here are the degrees I am looking in to:

A Bachelor of Science in History

A Bachelor of Science in Interior Design

Yes, one has nothing to do with the other. But both topics interest me. Having received information on both, I am a little scared. The interior design degree is a 4 year commitment for the degree. The history, I don’t have a lot of information on yet. However I was speaking with a client yesterday and they informed me that there is an interior design program at the local community college. I would be able to Certifications of Proficiencies in the following topics:

Interior Design
Green and Sustainable Design
Residential and Commercial Design
Kitchen and Bath Design

I can also follow up with additional courses to turn the Interior Design certificate in to an AA degree.

My quandary is do I go ahead with the community college, since its close and less money, get an idea to see if this is something I truly want to do…. Yes, it sounds like I have already made up my mind, but I do want your input. I am definitely intrigued in the interior design route.

Wouldn't the career outlook for the interior design option be broader? There are so many directions you could go with this...

With the history degree - wouldn't the main thing be teaching? Would that entail further education or a Doctorate to teach? Just thoughts..and questions...

Ultimately you need to do what you're passionate about...and that you'll be happy with in the long-run...
Good luck!

You should see which classes at the JC count towards the BS, so you won't have wasted any time or money moving forward.
