I love learning. And while I plan to use my degrees to get the job I want and work, I really love being in school and learning. But I cant see just taking courses willy nilly. So Im wondering....is there such a thing as to many degrees, and can having multiple degrees actually hurt your employment chances? I want to get grad degrees in Poli Sci, International Relations, Diplomacy, and Human Rights. All are somewhat similar in that they deal with the international community in one way or another. But they also deal with different things. Poli Sci is a good foundation. But I wonder if International Relations is to close to Diplomacy. And of course Im passionate about Human Rights. I would love a job with the State Dept working on international Human Rights policy, negotiating changes in the policies that already exist, or maybe working for an embassy overseas somewhere involved in diplomatic relations pertaining to human rights. Would to many degrees hurt my chances of being taken seriously? I know that the competition is fierce for jobs with the government, but I was thinking that if I had more than one degree, it would show that I am passionate, serious, and educated about diplomacy, international relations, and human rights. Maybe they would help me stand out a bit. Am I on to something, or am I way off base here??
