Education

So I have thinking about going to grad school and getting my masters degree. Caltrans is a partner with the Mineta Transportation Institute at San Jose State (wish it were Sac State, oh well, at least it isn't at the People's Republic of Davis-Sucks!).

The degree is Masters of Science in Transporation Management. The great thing about this program is that its run as a cohort, you take a class once a week at night at your building via video teleconference, and each class is 10 weeks long. You can finish in just over two years! And, Caltrans will pretty much reimburse all of your fees and tuition costs!

I am also looking at another masters program thru the Institute of Transportations Studies at Cal. I recently took an extension course on Land Use Planning and Transportation thru them for work and I enjoyed it.

It would be great to get both degrees, at least then I could say that I went to Cal!

I am so done with college. There is no way I could ever go back.

What degrees do you have? I just have my little government(poly sci)degree from Sac State.

I did grad school (accounting) a couple years after I finished my undergrad (poli sci)... and I might eventually do the weekend program Wharton has (but the SFO version, not the Philly one). I think its definitely worthwhile if it allows you to get a jump in your field - in some fields, its useless but others its a big aid.
