Q&A: College Degree, How do Majors work?

Tags : 

Question by : College Degree, How do Majors work?
I’m a little confused in how this works. Say i was to get a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Business Management. Would my major be “Business Management” or does my Major depend on the electives i decide to take, for example if i took marketing electives would that make my major “Marketing”? The reason I ask this, is because i was looking on the internet at Resumes, and i found someone who had a Bachelors of Science in Information Technology, and a listed their major as “Computer Networks”. So i’m a little confused as how Majors are defined.

Answer by Betsy
Each institution can be different but typically your major is your main classes and then you can have a concentration in another, yet related, area. For instance my degree is a Master’s of Arts in Counseling. My major however was Counseling – Student Affairs because I concentrated in the Student Affairs part.

So your major will be Business Management and then depending on your electives you could concentrate in Marketing. You could also Minor in Marketing and that would require a few more classes than the regular electives.

It sounds like the person who wrote his resume was a little confused. He might have been trying to show his potential employers he has experience with computer networks and so included that. Or Computer Networks might have been a category within IT at that school.

Good luck with your studies!

Question by Palyn P: What do you think of Internet Marketing college degrees?
Lots of colleges are starting to offer Internet Marketing degrees. Do you think those are worth anything in the real world? What do you think the employment opportunities are for people with those degrees? What do you think the future looks like for them?

Answer by Lucy Davis
While there is a lot of money to be made in the world of Internet marketing , I think that you can learn everything you need to know from online training programs which are a lot less expensive/time consuming than a full college degree.

A lot of companies are struggling to keep up with new techniques and trends in Internet marketing , so it’s a better use of your time to find an online program that updates regularly like eMarketSchool so that you can always have the upper hand.

Ultimately, Internet marketing is a very profitable field, so it’s definitely worth studying, but in today’s world, a degree just doesn’t mean the same thing it used to.

Q&A: Can I go to college at 16 yrs old?

Question by horsegirlgrace: Can I go to college at 16 yrs old?
OK why I’m wondering is because I want to be in real estate at 18 and my school isn’t teaching me what I really need to know…. like I really need to know how rocks form and history (if I want to know the stuff I will go on the internet and research it out) I want to drop out at 16 then enroll in a Arizona online college (Arizona is my state) take my courses. Then get a real estate tax id at 18 and go off and start my career right there! AND don;t say no one will hire you if you don’t have a high school diploma! One thing I’m working for my self (being my own boss) and another is that if they see I have a real estate certificate from college I don’t think they’ll complain! Also please don’t tell me my career chose sucks because I choose to do it and its my chose. So I just need an answer to that 1 q.
Also I’m not going to work at some fast food place! I know I need money before I start my own business! I’m going to work for a realter company! And if they see I have tooken classes and etc they will hire me! Also there government grants for businesses! The real estate market is good for what I want to do! So please don’t say wait for it to go back up! I want it down! Don’t ask me because its one of my business secrets that I don’t tell sorry.
I know tooken isn’t a word but I like it so i’ll use it except if I’m in a meeting! (its taken I know)

Answer by eri
You just asked this question. The answer won’t change – you need a high school diploma or GED to take college classes as anything other than a dual-enrolled high school student. Just dropping out won’t do it. And a few more English classes wouldn’t hurt – ‘tooken’ is not a word.
