  • I suggest having a couple of informationa interviews with professionals in each field, and speaking with an admissions counselor at your local community college or state university.

    Stay away from for-profit schools. They exist, by law, to make money for their owners/shareholders; education is not their priority. Start with a community college; they will likely have many classes on line and the credits will easily transfer to a state university. When I was in HR, I did not interview candidates from the for-profit schools
