    Default I'm done!! BA Psychology, TESU

    I've finished 100% of my coursework for my BA in Psychology! Just got the final grade back for my capstone today, and I earned a 97% in the class!

    My degree won't officially be conferred until December, but it's nice to be done with the actual work.

    Everyone here was so incredibly helpful, and of course I couldn't have done it without the forum's help.

    I want to thank Sanantone in particular. Your wikia degree plan was what helped me really figure out what I needed to do and how, and all I had to do was tailor it to the newer catalog and my circumstances. It was invaluable to me and I appreciate it very much! I think it was the first resource I really uncovered as far as alternative paths went, which led me to this great route. So thank you so much!

    Of course I had many questions along the way, and folks like cookderosa and dfrecore were always incredibly helpful. Thank you both! I know so many more of you were of so much help, and I'm sorry I can't remember each interaction to thank you each personally. If I did, this post would probably be book-length! Aside from being so helpful for my degree endeavors, this forum has been a fun community to learn new things, interact with interesting folks, encourage each other, or just kill some time while I'm at work.

    So, thanks DegreeForum!

    I think in this thread in the next few days I'll give a bit of a map of my degree path, mainly so I can move it out of my huge signature! I can just link to the post instead and save some extra room in that sig line so it's not as obnoxious

    I'm not certain what comes next, but I have some ideas in mind. My BA in Psych isn't super helpful in my line of work (other than checking a box) it's just something that has always been particularly interesting and engaging for me personally and the degree was a personal goal. So my next school endeavor will be more directly related to my career. I'm still thinking it out.

    At any rate, I'm done (for now)!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations!! You deserve a little break and do take your time (but not too much) deciding on your next step. It might not mean much to others but checking that little Bachelors Degree box does feel great.
