So are you moving?
No. It is an online Master's program
What are you studying?
Apparel Merchandising and Product Development
What are you going to do with that?
I want to be a college professor
I thought you were a college professor.
Nope. I am an adjunct instructor. I have a semester to semester contract that can be cancelled at any time and lower pay.
Is there an apparel program at BYU-Hawaii? Are you going to move?
No there isn't an apparel program at BYU-H and we haven't made any plans to move. I have made a proposal for an Apparel Certificate through the BYUH business department. It is under review and could give me something more to teach here. Teaching at BYU-Hawaii isn't the point of the degree though. If we move again (which is likely considering our track record) any other school would require I had a Master's degree to teach the courses I currently teach. I want to be able to continue doing what I am doing no matter where I end up.
How long will it take?
Do you go at your own pace?
No. Unlike my bachelor's degree this Master's program is on the semester system.
Will you have to write a Thesis?
I think it is an option but the online students are encouraged to take additional elective courses instead.
Do you think you'll go on to get a doctorate?
I'm not ready to make that decision yet. I do have my eye on a couple programs that interest me but I need to see where the next two years take me first.
