Ok, here's the situation.
I'm almost 37 years old, I've been in IT for almost 15 years, and I started back to school in 2012. I'm taking two classes at a time, essentially starting from zero. I took a few courses at a Junior College way back about 18 years ago, and not all of the credits transferred.
Anyway, right now I'm working toward a CS degree. However, my academic adviser told me that I have a couple of other options as well.
I can double major, which would be CS with Math, or I could dual degree.
The double major would require 4 extra math classes (I believe), and my degree would officially be "Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Mathematics". It would be one degree.
I could get a dual degree, which would require I think 6 or 8 additional math classes. But that would provide me with two degrees:
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
Or, I can just stick with the regular CompSci degree, and end up with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.
Ultimately, I would like to pursue a Masters degree, but with taking two classes at a time, it's going to take me at least 5 years to finish my undergrad, and that's if I take all three semesters a year.
So I'd like to get some input on this. I know there are a lot of professionals in here. What do you guys think? Is the double major/dual degree worth it if I'm going to get a Masters? Is it worth it if I'm not? How much (and at what point) does my experience start to override my lack of a degree?
