Is a Masters in IT Worth it?
I recently finished a Psychology degree, getting a 2:1. To be honest I didn't really enjoy it that much, and find programming C++ much more interesting. I just like the way there's so much to learn and, once you're skilled enough, you can do loads of interesting stuff like build your own applications/ games etc. So basically, I'm thinking about doing a Masters in IT, or something similar, such as this:
Postgraduate Interactive Systems Design Masters MSc at School of Computer Science
To do that, you need at least a 2:1 in your first degree, and they accept people who have done Psychology, because it relates to stuff on the course.
So do you guys think that something like that or a Masters in IT would be worthwhile? By worthwhile I mean would it make it likely that I could get a job in IT afterward? Ideally I'd like a job that would give me the opportunity to learn more programming, for the reasons I stated earlier.
Or is it the case that Masters courses just aren't enough to get you a job in IT? After all they're only for a year so it makes me wonder if employers would want someone more experienced.
