Your College Studies?
« on: June 23, 2006, 12:25:17 PM »
Who else here is currently enrolled in college, either in-resident or via distance learning??? I should be finished with my basic coursework in another 2 or 3 months and will then begin doing doctoral coursework, starting off with comps. :eek:

Where are you in your academic journey? :ranger:

I am taking a little break from my MA from the University of West Alabama.  I am 5 courses from completion.  I have a 3.83 GPA so far...

Of course, I also have 18 grad hours from Abilene Christian University in Religious Studies, etc and a Post Grad Certificate from Sheffield-Hallam University (UK) in History.

I will take my time on my current MA and probably finish in a year or two...

If you finish an MA in another year or two, that's pretty quick for being part-time.  I am getting very nervous about trying to figure out how to do a dissertation, along with the evaluation-methodology. :nervous:  The worst I can do is fail. :yesno: :eek:

I am currently taking the "doctoral comprehensive review" and when it's finished,  I'll begin the "research stage" followed by a "dissertation."  Wow, this has been a looooooooong time coming!!!!! Woohoo!!!! :orange:

Dr. me again???? Maybe someday???  Ohhhhhh no, I'm simply too immature to be a doctor!!!! :snicker: :lol:

Most people drop out sometime after the "doctoral comprehensive review," so I ought to simply keep my mouth shut right now and wait to see what happens. :smack: :nervous:

I am back at my MA and just finished two more courses.  3 more to go.  I plan to take two this winter term and one in the spring.  I also have a Comprehensive exam in the spring.  That will complete my requirements, so I should be done before summer.  I hope I can do some college adjunct teaching with this MA.  It is in English.  Of course, since I will have an Masters and also have at least 18 hours in religion, I could also teach courses in that subject.  I at least meet the minimum in that regard.

I made an A and a B this past term (the A was in English, the B in some ignorant research class).  So far my only two Bs are in the research course and a educational statistics course.  I don't think either will really be important in my field, but they are a requirement for the degree.  I have all As so far in English.  I think my GPA is 3.75 now.  Thats not too bad.

I doubt I will ever do a PhD in English.  I don't have the patience to finish a dissertation, I don't think.

Think "online adjunct"!!! That's my secondary goal! Just think of the money that can be made while working on the school's dime, while in your pajamas from your living room!!!! :orange:

I decided not to pursue any online adjunct positions until (hopefully) I got a doctorate.  I was teaching one in-resident class, but have given it up by taking a sabbatical, unless and until I get a doctorate.

Yeah, I read over at degreeinfo that some adjuncts are making 30-100,000 bucks a year doing online and local coursework.  Not too shabby...

I would be more than happy to settle for the 30 grand.. haha

Doing my final course right now for the MA.  It isn't too hard, so I expect to do well in it.  I am a little more anxious about the comprehensive exam in two weeks.  But we shall see...

You'll find it exhilarating to finally complete a Masters degree and I speculate that the exhilaration will last about a year before it wears off. :eek:  

When it finally dawned on me that a Masters in criminology will never make me rich... not even remotely... then I suddenly realized that I'll have to settle for the richly rewarding academic experience that it was... and nothing more!!! :smack: Your mileage may vary since your Masters will be in English or Theology (I can't remember).

Heeheee heee :lol:

In the beginning, if I could have known how hard a dissertation is, then I would NEVER[/u] have begin a doctoral program.  :nono: Now it's become nothing more than a grudge match; I must finish it "by any means necessary." :rant:  Let's just say that I've been forced to hire a tutor; and without his assistance, I would NEVER be able to complete a dissertation.  :noidea: There is still no guarantee, even with his help.  But I'm not going down without a fight. :rant:  

Having a Masters in criminology didn't magically open doors to online adjunct positions for teaching criminal justice.  Persistence would probably pay off (e.g. constantly applying).  However, I'm reasonably certain that with a doctorate with a specialization in criminal justice, then I'll easily be able to make that 30k extra each year -- maybe more??? First my tutor and I have to get through this dissertation crap. :mmph:
