comment Is a Master's worth it?
I completely see my undergrad CIS degree (since its headed by a BS in Bus. Admin) is a good thing to have and I feel my experience is strong. At this point, I'm really leaning towards looking to jump right into the PhD program at CGU or look at software engineering (as opposed to CS) degrees at other schools. I do have a great passion in development and would like to learn some higher level concepts to not only prepare me for now, but to prepare me for the future when I would like to manage a team of technologists.

oh haha, you're absolutely right. That's exactly what he was referring to. Interesting you mentioned that though there is one division here that uses a combination of Python developers and 3D artists with Panda3D to create some pretty awesome stuff.

what do you mean by looking up the generalized degree program? Are you talking about the MSIS from CGU?

comment Is a Master's worth it?
these very thoughts have crossed my mind which is what lead me to pose this question in the first place. I've also been told the latter point of your response is one of the most valuable things about grad school. At this point my concern is perhaps I'm not associating myself with the people I should be for the work I do. Something else I've not decided is if I wanted to be a programmer for the rest of my professional career or move towards management of technology/technologists. I'm thinking the latter, but I love programming so much ;)

You're right it usually is required, but it is not something I'm interested (at this time).

Heh I used to do graphics when I was younger and I was filling the role of both web designer and web developer. However, since then, I've decided I have a stronger passion for the computer sciences ;)

Your response is what I relate to the most—which is my primary concern. I noticed this after I met my fellow classmates for my first semester last Fall. Many of them had come from a business or other backgrounds. Would you suggest a CS degree?
