  • I've considered it - due to the nature of my degree, I'd only be a few credits shy of a double major anyway. I don't know that I'd do two from scratch with completely different requirements, for financial reasons more than anything. If they're related fields, then yes (or a bach in one and masters in the other).

  • My husband is currently working on his second Bachelor's degree. His first is in education and he want to study Theology. You can't get a Master's in Theology unless you have a Bachelor's in Theology first ...hence the second Bachelor's degree.

  • It depends.

    I majored in accouting and considered nursing. There is an accelerated bsn program for students with a bachelors to obtain a bachelors in nursing in one year.

  • I personally would not; if I was to go for another degree, I'd go for my master's.

  • If I were going to go into a completely different field such as nursing or hard sciences, I guess I would. I already have two masters degrees and don't plan on going back to school any time soon.
