I'm getting my B.S. degree in History, Secondary Education but I don't plan on teaching when I graduate in June. Its just not what I thought it would be.

I'm either going into higher education or property management.

I use mine everyday. BS in Automotive Technology. I teach the subject at a high school and I am an ASE master auto technician. I am still learning too. My degree didn't teach me everything, but It laid the ground work for everything after.

You got me there; it was rather late when I posted. My degree is in chemistry, but since most of my course work and laboratory work was in organic, I think of it as a BS in organic chemistry.

Me too.

However, I use what I learned everyday. BA in History, working at the West Point Museum.

On the other hand I need to get a MA in Museum Studies now. I have a lot more to learn about that aspect.

Used the B.S. in Aeronautics for the first two years out of college. Wasn't going anywhere in the company, so now I'm in law school, which seems to be a pretty good fit so far.

B. Sc Physics & Astronomy, M.Sc. Nuclear Physics.
30 years at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited : reactors ops,

Best way of getting a master's have someone else pay for it. My brother-in-law got the Army to pay for two masters from USC, which has kept him busy since the end of his Army days.

Kind of. I have a B.Sc in Computer Science and M.Sc in Information Engineering, and I run a software development company. These days I'm less hands-on, but I know the business wouldn't be where it's at if I didn't have the degrees.
