Title: What subjects do we have degrees in here on OC.net?
Post by: Fr. George on December 05, 2009, 04:06:19 PM
Since we have lots of people who ask questions targeted toward a specific field of study, I thought we could try and get an idea as to what kind of specialties are represented.

Please - advanced degrees only (not HS/equiv.), and major fields only.

There appears to be a distinction between Computer Engineering and generic Engineering.  I checked the latter.

Wrapping up my BS (Hons. Spec.) in Theoretical Computer Science, then hopefully off to grad school in the same field.

One request.  Can you change Computer Programming / Engineering to Computer Science / Engineering.  Computer Programming is a rather small subfield of Computer Science.  :)

You should add Greek and Latin (Classics), the Queen of all subjects and the largest and most important faculty at all of the original European Universities (going back to the University of Constantinople).

Also, you should add Law, another one of the still extant ancient faculties.

B.A. French & Spanish. The university department was at the time actually called Romance Studies; they've since changed it to "Department of French, Spanish, and Italian", and I did take a couple of courses in Italian, too, so I guess I can claim a B.A. in Romance Studies  :D
B.Ed. I'm surprised that Education is not an option.

BA in history and working on my Master's in the same.

I'm studying American Indians (especially in the military and Progressive Era). I'd like to go for a doctorate and become a professor someday.

I like cultural history and occasional dabbling in political and intellectual history when it connects (and that is fairly often).

I would spend $50 for a joke that I can frame and hang on my office wall. I am thinking that the "Ph.D. in Biblical Studies" for $125 might be a better deal. I could get a student loan in order to slowly pay off the difference ($75). The cheapest class ring at $368 is beyond my means.

It had questions like "Why is YOLO said to excuse irresponsible behavior?" and others that I can't remember because I blacked out for a while.
