    How many of you are actually doing something in the field you got your undergraduate degree in?

    I've got 2 in history (church&art).
    I sometimes still get to lecture and write articles on those subjects. However it most certainly isn't a way to earn a living for me.

    I have an BS in Electrical Engineering. I've written software for the past 4 years. In fact, I'm still writting code to support my seminary habit.

    I got a BS in General Studies

    What field would that qualify me for? Well the marketing fluff said any of them.

    I am a sytems engineer for a Network Computing company.

    I got my B.S. in Zoology... emphasis on Herpetology (Reptiles). After working as a Biology teacher and as a Reptile Supervisor in a zoo, God called me into the ministry.

    Now people call me not only to get the snakes out of their lives, but out of their yards as well! [​IMG]

    BA - Bible and Secondary Ed majors. Yes on the former and nope on the later, though have used a lot of the learning in education in the ministry.

    B.A. in Industrial Arts.
    M.Divbl.
    Working on Doctor of Industial Technology.

    I have used what I learned in that major for years. Used it when I was and wasn't pastoring. It has made me a great living for many years now.

    B.S. in French Education

    The education part somewhat, as I teach Sunday School and work for an educational organization. But the French not at all. :( I miss it.
