Greetings and salutations to all.
OKAY, I've been lurking this forum for awhile...and the CIS/MIS/BS of CoSci issue has been debated to the death of it. My dilemma is slightly the same yet in a different direction.
Currently I'm attending a community college majoring in Information Technology with a concentration in communications. I have been of full-time attendance since the Fall of 2005 immediately after graduation, and will complete the courses for my prescribed degree in December 2007. Here’s where I’m seeking advice – After graduation, it is possible with an addition semester I can obtain an A.A.S. degree in computer systems support also. Would it be wise to go ahead and pursue this second A.A.S. which means I would have spent a total of 3 years in community college, or should I transfer to a University in order to obtain a B.B.A. in MIS. In the long-run, which would be more beneficial? Will the prestige of having a B.B.A. outweigh the experience I will gain with my two A.A.S. degrees?
Also, the University I plan on transferring to only allows a small number of my credits to transfer; I will have to continue schooling for an additional 3 years!!! (Totaling 5 instead of the normal 4; Not that I mind, its just that finances tend to become more restricted as I get older, move out on my own, pay rent, car notes, etc.)
So, what would you all do? I’m a 19 y/o female who’s in love with computers - from networking to programming and installing and building, who has the option of two A.A.S. degrees or one A.A.S and possibly a B.B.A. in MIS.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
