If you could go back to school tomorrow, for any kind of degree, all expenses paid, what would you want to study and why?

I want to get a degree in physics. I was a liberal arts major with a masters in English and Library Science in my younger days and now I want to see what I've missed by not studying the hard sciences. I've got a masters in computer science and I've taken college level math and science classes and my current fascination is theoretical physics. I've usually take at least one class every year, but since I've been teaching 1 course a semester, I haven't had time for the past few years.

I think I would do some graduate work in linguistics which was my undergraduate major. I fell in love with medieval history along the way and its been good to me, but I am still kind of curious about neurolinguistics. Oh, and astrophysics but I do not have the math background. But as long as we are fantcizing, can I be smart in math, too?

A degree in Czech, now that would be cool. Does any of what you have previously done in the area, not the geographical one ;), count for any kind of college credit?

I didn't realize you were teaching. I bet you are good at it. Dd decided against physics, because she thought serious study thereof might be detrimental to one's mental health, lol. You are probably safe though ;).

Yep, fantasy all the way, you can be smart in math too. Some of the thinking necessary in some areas of linguistics is not so very different from math thinking though. I agree, btw, neuro-lingustics is a fascinating field.

I am surprised Rosetta doesn't have it. OTOH, I did use Rosetta for a while, and although it is somewhat helpful I would not recommend it.
