So I'm currently a junior at the University of Maryland majoring in Criminal Justice/Criminology. I've been pretty interested in astronomy for a few years, but lacked the focus to really feel confident in such an undertaking. I have no idea now what specifically I'd like to do with an additional degree, but I'd almost certainly pursue grad school with it. I'm just coming to the realization that I simply have no interest in my field, but will probably graduate in May 2011 because I've put in the wrench time with my Crim. degree. Is it feasible to get that second degree in astronomy in 4 - 5 semesters from now? I plan on taking and passing the credit-by-exam for at least Calc I, I'm starting the requirements with nothing other than the gen-eds and electives filled. Requirements are HERE The reason for the question is the 'rents said they'd pay for whatever education I want, including law school/grad school so long as I'm out of the beast by the time I'm 25 -- I'm 21 now. Time for me to get on the ball... Thanks for your time.
