I am a 25 year old consultant in the oil and gas industry. I work mostly with welding, pipe manufacturing, and protective coatings. It is a lucrative career but not a very fulfilling one. I do not have any college under my belt. I have always enjoyed physics. I spend a lot of my free time reading and trying to go through workbooks on the subject. I have the same passion for astronomy. Self teaching really only goes so far I think. That's why I have been thinking about going back to school. Now I don't currently want to quit my job due to the money I make. So I was wondering if there are any decent online degree programs that may work for me. I know it won't help me career wise. I know I could try to get a degree in something that would help further my career but I would rather learn something I'm passionate about. So what are my options for an online degree? Is there any way I could use an online degree to begin a career change somewhere down the road? Thanks in advance.
