Do you sit in front of a computer screen all day, entering data or emailing colleagues, and secretly dream of returning to the classroom to teach? Or, perhaps you long to express your creativity through art? Maybe you stop on the sidewalk just to stare at homes, wishing you were a real estate agent.
Don't worry! It is pretty common to realize that the major you picked twenty years ago in college just isn't as fulfilling as you imagined it would be back then. If you're looking for something more, something different, something new, a second bachelor's degree is an option you should strongly consider.
Requirements for a Second Bachelor's Degree
First, you should know that not every school offers second bachelor's degrees for every major. Search around and talk with college admissions officers if you need to be sure. Once you find a program you like, you'll need:
Some schools require a particular GPA from your previous school, and others require strict application procedures that limit second bachelor degree candidates. Look for a program that fits you - and is welcome to returning students.
- A completed bachelor's degree, and
- To be in good academic standing at your previous college.
Benefits of a Second Bachelor's Degree
The primary benefit of a second bachelor's degree is that you shouldn't have to take the general education requirements, as you did for your first degree. You can jump right into classes for your major, and save yourself time and money.
Another benefit is that as an experienced student, you know what you want and usually take away more from your classes than you did the first time around. Second bachelor's degrees are a great experience for those seeking a career change.
