any degree except web design? So you don’t think a BFA in graphic design would help at all? What if I got a BFA in graphic design (because I already have a lot of credits in it and it would be 2-3 times faster than CS), then get a job and work on math classes on the side until I’m ready to apply for a masters in CS? Would that probably work?
I can take a lot of classes in web development at the college I am at. I can get an associates in web development and an associates in android application development fairly quickly if I take the prerequisites for them while I finish my other associates. After I finish my first associates and the beginning/prerequisites, I could finish both the web development associates and android app associates with one additional year of education (if I take lots of classes at once, which I think I can handle). Then I could finish a BFA in design in less than 2 years because of all the general education and design credits I have. There is a state university I have visited that will take a large quantity of my credits. I have talked to the department head of design there and discussed transferring so I know. Also, I get in-state tuition there.
My current plan, which I just discussed above, would take a total of 3.5 years total from now (at most) to finish a bachelors in graphic design, an associates in web development, and an associates in android app development. The types of programming classes included in these associates are more relevant to web and application development than the types of programming classes included in a CS degree, so it might enable me to get to work building websites and apps a lot faster than getting a BS in CS. If I finished an associates in graphic design (I might as well finish it since I’m close) and took math classes at the same time to obtain the level of math proficiency I would need for CS, it would take about 1 more year to get to pre-calculus level (assuming I do not fail any math classes and need to re-take them), then it would take a minimum of 3.5 additional years of education for me to finish a BS in computer science. This would take a total of 4.5 years (at least) to get a bachelors. I still would need to learn the type of programming skills that would be relevant to web development and app development, so it might take even longer for me to develop the skills I would really need to do web development. Also, since I am not very good at math and science classes, I may need to space out the degree requirements for a BS in CS in order to do well enough successfully complete them. This is why I thought 4.5 years would only be a minimum amount of time I would need to finish college if I did a BS in CS instead of a BFA in design.
How about a BFA in graphic design, my 2 associates (4 if you count my associates in gen ed for a bachelors and my associates in graphic design), and eventually a masters in CS or related field? On my resume, I would make the gen ed associates and graphic design associates less prominently displayed, but still mentioned because they would be less important than my other degrees. Would this be just as useful as a BS in CS?
