James, I forgot to add, as you suggested working toward a minor in psychology, that ODU does offer Human Service students a minor in psychology via distance. So that is why I'm currently taking an upper level psychology course with them. Just didn't want to start the H.S. coursework that I'll be expected to enroll in this Spring. Maybe I can stall them off another semester by taking another psychology course online - who knows, perhaps they'll take the hint and start expanding the program. Nosborne48 your social worker friends sound like mine! Thanks for the feedback. I take your word for it, just wondered if this was perception or reality. Probably both.
