out of interest, if you are currently studying at university/college, please post what you're studying. I'm currently studying 1st year biology and chemistry.

Due to multiple majors, I have nearly 300 college credits.  I studied theatre arts, humanities, human communication and psychology.

As a home-learner (age 6 to 16 secondary ed, lifelong on subjects of interest) I grew up at the library and have read many thousands of books on hundreds of subjects.

(And yes, I do kick ass at Trivial Pursuit. :grin:)

Ya, there are some dumb kids in here. yet sometimes the people who value college less-so and dont take coarses would school you any day in subjects you study.

I said "finished tertiary," but actually I'm on my last semester. I'll have a BA in Sociology by the end of the year.

College is over-rated, and I dont care where you study.
Not that Im not at about the 200 creadit "mark".
Honors students are a gas, lets just say.

Yes, there are very knowledgable people who haven't undertaken formal study. this is just a rough survey to see what S&Per's have studied formally.

I respectfully disagree your opinion. if you don't care about others education then why are posting in this thread?

Cause I thought it was a funny question. You know that most truely educated individuals that come to the forum would not be interested and have better things to do than talk chat philosophy and such.
I just thought it was a silly-qualifier type post. I was just messin around anyways. I do beleive where you go to school matters.

And the people who respond to this are either educated, or just putzing around. SO you wont know how many people are educated given how few you will talk to. This will be erased in a days time.

you're right, but this is hardly a rigid statisical experiment. the number of respondents doesn't matter to me as long as there are some responses. (there are already 7) I think many here would be interested to know what education others here may have. But thanks for your contribution, every opinion adds to the picture. :thumbup:

I chose "some tertiary" because I dropped-out of University after three years. I came to loathe a system which was only marginally better at giving me what I wanted than the Public education system had been. I would hazard a guess that upwards of 90% of the knowledge I have has come from sources outside of the school system. The 10% I did learn in the school system is almost entirely in the "socialization" area - school taught me how to get along with other people and not much else :smirk:

My "eductation" is almost entirely self-taught.

In addition to my studies in school, I'd like to add that I've studied economics and history a great deal on my own. I've also tried to learn as much as I can about quantum physics and string theory with my limited math skills.

No it was an Honours program, so it was a full 4 years.

I was studying Computer Science.

I don't know what it's like in New Zealand, but here in North America, it's usually 4 years, though it's 4 1/2 for me, due to some bad decisions early on.

Here all the "general" programs are 3-years...but those are in the minority now and FAST disappearing!

On my first day of class the Dean of Computer Science got up and said to all the CS first-years "If you are in a general 3-year program...switch to the 4-year NOW! If you are in the 4-year already, PLAN ON getting at least a Masters or two before you get a good job."

The prospect of going through yet another year to get my BCs, then another 2-5 years getting a Masters and PhD doesn't appeal to me right now. :smirk:

ahh, righto. do you not get a degree at all then? in NZ (and South Africa where I'm originally from) degree's are three years and honours is an extra year. honours is considered potgrad so you still have your degree even if you drop out of honours.
