Christian Website Design it is a BS degree...

I do so admire your frugality dcommini. I am sure that there are others here that would appreciate a BS degree for $50.


I doubt any one here would pay $50 for what they consider a joke.

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.

I have a degree in meteorology which changes how many times I think warmly of it. Right now I'm at 55 times.

I looked into that at CMU 6 months ago, and its like 56k a year for tuition. No thanks. Sounds like a good degree to get...

That reminds me: I was headed to my department a few days ago when I saw in the elevator a flyer for some sort of seminar course or something on the semantics of "YOLO". 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.

Higher education at its finest, certainly. (And it's not even a party school, as far as I can tell.)

As someone asked earlier, where's Education on the list?

AB*     Major: Special Education  Minor: Elementary Education
JD**   Law


(*That's how you can tell that it's from a Jesuit university; the degree sounds so much more impressive in its Latin form :D )
(""Not from a Jesuit school; apparently, they just liked the sound of it in Latin   :P  )

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.

It's a silly topic, but I'm glad that they're holding a serious discussion about the ramifications of this new word/movement.

I'm reminded of the Lonely Island song, "YOLO," in which the phrase is interpreted in a completely different way (don't do risky things because you only live once!).

Very interesting. It seems like many people here study the humanities.

There are two reasons for that: a) because they are human and want to try to begin to understand humanity; or b) they are aliens and want to try to begin to understand humanity.
