Speaking of stress, I'm thinking of going back to College....

I'm thinking of majoring in english ( A field I'm passionate about) or computer science (a Field recommended, because it has a lot more earning potential). I asked another forum about this earlier and though it was informative, I'm still making this decision. What are the pros and cons of each field? What field of study do you recommend?

So how is going back to College like these days? Is it that much stressful? Should I go to a community college first to get my associates or a legit local 4 year university?

A little bit about my situation. I'm a disabled Air Force vet, currently earning 100% in pension. So I don't need the money, but it would be nice just to finish my education ya know. Just to show that I did it and possibly make a career out of it to earn more income.


Just wondering thanks.

Computer science is way better to do than English. Only go to college is you are majoring in some STEM major, such as Computer Science.

If you're disabled, is your disability significant enough to prevent you from working in some trade occupation?

STEM and trade occupations are the best ones to pursue.

I have a diagnosed mental condition and gets exhausted easily by certain tasks so it would have to depend.

I got a lot of opinions and advice about it so far, ranging from follow your passions, to getting a double major or majoring in business management, etc.

I'll make this decision before going back to the US.

majoring in business management
Business is a bit of a shiit major.

In theory, the major of business gets sold to younger people and potential students as a major with practical utility. The idea goes that you'll be able to get a job more easily after school than an "X Studies" or a Social Sciences/Liberal Arts type major. It's debatable about whether or not that is actually true. It seems logical to think it would be true. The problem is that there are so many business majors out there. The typical BA/BS degree in some business discipline from X State University is not going to stand out on a resume. If you don't have good connections, you won't get the interview despite your degree. Submitting resumes online is the job search equivalency of swiping on an app to get laid or find an extended relationship.


At the master's level (MBA), only bothers getting MBA if it is from a Top 25 school. If you get an MBA and it isn't from a Top 25 school and you don't have a good personal network, you'll going to have a miserable time trying to turn a positive return on effort/investment from doing the MBA.

A 4 year university is best for STEM majors. If you're not planning to major in STEM, pursue trade school or a trade occupation instead.

Business and the Social Sciences/Liberal Arts are generally a waste of time.

Only go into college if you get your way paid 100%. The US educational system is broken and rotten.

Majoring in English won't get you anything you can't already learn from books and the internet for free. It also has no earning potential. One of my good friends is an English major and he drives for uber to make money. All liberal arts degrees are worthless, and most liberal arts faculty staff are infested with SJWs.

Don't fall for the trap of needing to go to college. The biggest names in computer science dropped out of college and instead built something. But if you must, I'd only recommend a STEM degree.

I'm going to be using The GI Bill so the whole thing is going to be paid off.

I don't need the money, I'm just in it for the college experience and to become a better writer. Plus with the GI Bill, I'm gonna be earning a few thousand dollars off it just by taking classes.

It would be a waste not to use the GI Bill, which is why I'm thinking of atleast taking a few classes.

While I appreciate your passion for English, what exactly would you plan to do with your degree? Why pay for a degree that will cost more than you'll earn in a year for it?

Yes, Computer Science has a huge earning potential but if you aren't passionate about it you likely will find it hard to get very far toward that earning potential. Too many people who love it and are passionate about it to be able to advance if you aren't.

Either way I would highly recommend going to school virtually at a REAL school that offers online classes not only just a school that exists online.

I would find one that is ranked highly for your program AND most importantly charges reduced rates instead of what most schools do and charge out of state rates which make no sense at all.

Couldn't this be said about any field/occupation one chooses?
