An opportunity that is based on you having "any" degree without any regard doesn't make sense.

In that case, why not do a BS online degree that has the shortest time of completion, but still gets you a degree - I mean, if it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter, right?
Actually, it makes sense if you are in the military.

Sort of. Ok, in the real world, it doesn't make sense, but in the military, I strongly suspect they just want you to have a BA. Not too particular in what. And they would fund his education...I suspect military.

In any event Donovan - I would choose something that isn't necessarily the shortest, but is of the most interest to you. Because whatever you are doing now, you probably won't be doing it for a lifetime (irregardless of how you feel now) and you want something that can put you ahead later on AND something you enjoy.

I wouldn't think an arts degree would be terribly useful though for someone who suggested that. Pretty much anything else on the list though...
