Level of education?

Postby koin4life » Tue Jan 31, 2006 9:55 am

I am curious to find out everyone's level of education. I would think that those that have higher degrees might be the ones that tend toward atheism.

I have a BSc (hons) in Computer Science - is that the equivalent of '4 yr college'?

BSc (hons)

Yes, a BSc is roughly equivalent to '4 years' even though it seems like a lot of students are finishing in 5 or 6. In most questionaires, if you don't have some kind of graduate degree, you have '4 years of college' even if it took you 15 to earn all of those undergrad degrees.

I selected 4 years of college as well, but I actually have two degrees, one a BA in computer science, and a BM in Music Composition - so I'm kind of pushing that 4 year definition as well. And I also have a teacher certification for which I had to attend post-graduate classes to receive as well. But I don't have a master's yet. Although my wife is trying to talk me into that right now.

I don't consider myself an atheist, although I certainly did for a time in my life. But I'm most definitely not a christian either. An impersonal deist is how I would describe it.

I selected "4 years college" because I have been at university for (more than) four years. I'll finally be getting my Bachelor's in Forest Resources Management this year.
Yes Virginia, there is such thing as Christian Deism.

I have a university degree - a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies. I was at university a total of 7 years. I've been working as a video editor for over 8. Am an atheist, tho the subjects I chose had little to do with notions of being, theology or science. Those were just subjects I am passionate about and have a keen interest in, and have more to do with me being an atheist than my degree.

Bachelor's degree, earned at a Methodist college, double major in music (vocal performance) and religion. After college I spent a year in seminary before dropping out, started a master's in music but hated it and left after a month, and finally started taking psychology classes. I finally got my master's degree in community counseling (now mental health counseling), and later a post-master's certificate in marriage & family therapy. I've been practicing as a psychotherapist for about 25 years.

Went to a liberal arts college in Illinois called Knox College for two years, switched from creative writing to anthropology to creative writing to classics to English literature, got sick of liberal arts, now taking a voluntary leave of absence and going to community college back in my home town of Berkeley, CA where I'm trying computer science of all things and thinking of transferring to San Francisco State or UC Santa Cruz.

I answered "2 yr college".

I have an associates degree from the local community college where I also received my certification in dental assisting.
