    Default Best masters after getting a BA in General Studies

    I'm getting a garbage degree in general studies, but want to get a job that makes lots of money. Despite my medical problems maybe being a disqualifier, I'm going to see if I can lie my way into the navy so I can maybe pay for a masters in something lucrative, but I'm not sure if that will work. Do I honestly have any other options for payment while I'm at it? By the way, what is the most lucrative masters?

    I second @ceecee on this

    ... Then again, I may be a teensy bit biased towards men in uniform.

    Anyway - computer science is also quite high in demand especially cyber security (my dream career path). I'd be happy to offer you some advice if you're ever considering getting into that field.

    I would welcome advice. I stayed with CVS over a raise with walgreens for now since I know CVS will not keep me past 9, and that's nice while in school. Right now, though, 20 hours a week and 12.64 an hour is a little low to live on. I will do what is most lucrative.

    Hmm - in that case, I'd recommend getting into computer science if you feel up to the challenge. There are sites that offer free courses to get you started, like Codecademy and FreeCodeCamp.

    Seems like computers will be promising. My cousin's boyfriend works in computers, and told me some interesting things when I spoke to him at Christmas reunion. He told me there will be a need for 500,000 computer scientists in Europe, and that there will never be enough. The reason he told me that was because I told him I wanted to work with computers, especially statistics. Busniess intelligence he told me, analyzing databases and stats of companies, will be in especially high demand.

    I wanna get into this field too, since it's something that suits me, and you make good money, plus it seems it will be in high demand in the future...

    If you like statistics, I would absolutely encourage you to pursue it. I've found a lot of math people, my physics husband included, really hate statistics. I'm always mystified by this. I have some friends that are in the field, one is an actuary, two are statisticians. And you can work in so many industries, it's very flexible.

    I really love statistics. I've never been a math/physics person (though I am good at math, I just find it too abstract in itself). Thanks!

    I'm better at math than a lot of people, assuming I have paper to work it out or a calculator. My mental math can give weird results. I'm even better at straight-up memorizing things, which is odd given how forgetful I am in day-to-day life. If I make a special effort to mentally record an event, it will stay there forever. 2 years ago, a phychologist asked my to remember the words "Cow", "Eyedropper", and "Happiness" for 10 minutes, and it is still remember it. I did a statistics class, and it was interesting.
