    What was your college major?

    Math was always my best and favorite subject in school. So I started my undergraduate life with a major in Mathematics but I didnít have the aptitude for it so I got a bachelors in Economics.

    Then in my 30s I got an Associates degree at night in Accounting. Which maybe due to my age but I got a lot more of that experience than university

    Started off as a history major. I'd always been interested in history, and I had a really supportive teacher in high school who encouraged me to pursue that subject.

    Once I got into college, the history professors I had were the exact opposite: uninspiring, not particularly encouraging. It took the wind out of my sails.

    Then I had an English professor who asked me if I had ever considered majoring in English. She said I seemed to have a knack for it. And that's all it took to change my major from history to English.

    My Bachelor's degree is in Meteorology. I also have a graduate certificate (completed classes, but no thesis) in Computational Science.

    Originally, Film. Then Computer Science. And then I thought about Physical Therapy. I ended up dropping out and getting a job doing basic accounting stuff. Later, I got a job as a Web Developer/Database Manager and went to WGU for a BS in Business Admin during my free time.

    My undergrad degree is psychology from Ohio State and graduate degree in computer science from Wright State.

    My undergrad I had no idea what I wanted to do and went mostly to stay out of Viet Nam. And then I stumbled into programming. Working for Wright State out of school, I got to take all the classes I wanted to for free which offset the lousy pay.

    Mechanical engineer with a focus on fluid power. Afterwards, studied software and database development, which made a perfect blend for robotics. Today 80% of my work is software related.
