Hey Group, I hope I never seem to be "turning in different directions" so quickly, but this really did sound like a good idea -- and I have gained a lot of inspiration and help out of the members of this board and was wondering if somebody could comment on this. I have sent my unofficial transcripts for review to Excelsior -- and they never really could interpret the transcript I sent in from American Intercontinental University. So, they asked that I have my official transcripts from both institutions sent in -- so they could evaluate those...... and if I decided to enroll I wouldn't have to worry about sending those in again. I'm not sure if I have ever stated this on the board before, but I'm aiming to become an Elementary School Teacher -- with Alternate Certification. I made this remark to an Excelsior Representative this morning and was told......... "rather than the major in Psychology, why don't you just choose the Liberal Arts -- and take an Area of Focus in Education, and your depth area in Psychology". I think this sounds like a very good idea, but I'm wanting some extra opinions from some of you. I do believe, at one point, I read on this board that a Liberal Studies degree was what most teachers in California had, is this correct? The representative seemed certain (from what they could make out) that I would likely already have a depth area in Business (and might possibly have an area of focus in Business). I have already taken Introduction to Education..... and I was wondering -- for the upper level credits needed -- if I could take some of the classes from the BYU Independent Study in Education. Oh, and I'm also getting the opinion that with 90 lower level credits and 30 upper level credits, that the degree might be a whole lot easier to finish in a year -- as I had originally wanted. I'm still thinking, from the situation described about Rosie's experience with Excelsior, it might be best to go ahead and enroll so I can get a definite call on where credits will go and what credits I will need. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME MORE ADVICE HERE............... Is this the right call for somebody who would want to earn a degree and later teach?? J.V.
