    Chipping the cooled, solidified rock out of the BBQ grill might be a little tough too.

  • bachelors or associates?

    Hi. I'm currently working on an associates degree in graphics design and plan to get a bachelors in computer science so I can combine the two and be both a web developer and web designer. I don't think I should get a masters degree and if I did I would only do it after I get some work experience in the industry because I'm afraid I would look overqualified and unappealing to employers if I had 1+ bachelors and a masters degree with no work experience in the industry.

    I do plan to at least complete a bachelors in computer science and I do want some graphic design education too, but I'm not sure what kind of graphic design degree I should seek. I would like a bachelors and it probably wouldn't take much more time to get another bachelors than an associates, but it would be cheaper and also easier because of proximity to get an associates than a bachelors. Would having two bachelors degrees make me look overqualified to employers? Would it be better to complete my associates, then get a masters in graphic design eventually than just complete a bachelors in graphic design? I'm already halfway through getting an associates in graphic design, so I'm not sure if I should switch to another college that offers a bachelors in design (mine only offers an associates) instead or not.

    I thought maybe since it's cheaper where I am currently going to college to finish an associates, I should just do that to save money for my bachelors in computer science, but I'm wondering if that's the best combo or not...

    If I want to be both a designer AND developer, would I need a bachelors in both? Just wondering what some professionals in the industry would say...

    If I can manage to put together a good design portfolio, would it even matter which type of degree(s) I get?
