Is a major university an option that is affordable for you, or could you get a scholarship?
My thoughts on this for you could you potentially get a Psychology Undergraduate Degree and then get a Masters in IT? That is one route.
I know that Allen (Hauser) went a different route and I believe he did a program for his IT job he has now. So that is another potential route.
Just trying to throw some ideas out there.
The beauty of getting different b.s. and masters is that you can get a masters or b.s. in a non related field and still get into the programs, often with perquisites.
Just trying to help ya bud.
For me I have interests in food and nutrition as well as exercise because these are things I enjoy. So my plan is to get my b.s. in nutrition, get a masters in exercise science and then kill two birds with one stone. Become a fitness and nutrition expert.
It's great your asking these questions. If you have a local community college or even a career service center you can find a career counselor who can give you better advice with what you just told us.
Great that your planning for your future. Way to be.
