Anyone ever go back to school for a completely unrelated degree?

    Hello everyone,

    I graduated from college in May 2010. I started working in my chosen field, but I did not enjoy it like I thought I was going to; actually, I chose it because I thought it would be the perfect mesh between doing something I somewhat enjoy with something that has jobs. Now, I'm considering going back to school for something completely unrelated.

    Anyone ever go back to school for something so completely unrelated, that almost none of your undergraduate course work was related?


    PS: Original coursework was BS in Marketing and BA in Spanish, but now I'm considering something in Nutrition.

    I did one year program for fitness/nutrition/kinesiology last year because I had this crazy idea I'd try to find work at a gym.

    Might just want to go for your masters if you can find any sort of synergies with your bachelor's degree. Unless you're really rich, it doesn't make sense to go back to school to essentially double major.

    I have a BFA in music and am now studying CNC machining. How's that for completely unrelated? Some of my snobby friends are giving me crap about going all "blue collar" but I'll be working a challenging job where my eye for detail and precision will be highly rewarded. There are about 30,000 high tech. industrial positions here in Wisconsin that need to be filled.

    I would love to go back to school. But I got no time and got no duckets. Not interested in taking out a loan either. I need to hit the lottery or something. icon_lol.gif

    Currently have a degree in Information Systems. Would like to go back to school to get a degree in Criminal Justice and/or Kinesiology. And for fun, take some automotive or motorcycle repair programs.

    I'm interested in reading the replies to this thread because I'm in the same position as you. I have a BA in Audiology, but I'm thinking about just taking a 2 year nursing program because I don't think I want to go for my doctorate.
