Is returning for a 2nd bachelors a good idea?

Here's the deal. I graduated with a useless history degree and am having trouble finding a job. I'm now 24 and need to make some changes asap so I'm not doomed to living with my parents until I'm 90. Question: is returning for a 2nd bachelors in Engineering ever a good idea, in terms of long-term financial stability? Or is going for a masters in accounting or nursing a better choice?

Online school for programming?

My boyfriend is hoping to find a really nice online programming study that results in a Bachelor's degree - his goal is to work on games, but we figure that non-game-based online schools could be just as helpful, and cost-effective. (Learn normal programming, and then just adjust courseload later on to take a couple of game programming classes and take a lot of C++ and usual game languages.) Does anyone have recommendations for such online study programs? [more inside]

is it too late for a 30yr old to get a degree?

I want to get back to school and get a degree to find a better job but I am already 30. Is it too old to try for a degree? my interests are IT and finance, though IT is much more easier for me. Does anyone know the IT market in British Columbia? I don't want to be IT monkey forever and I would like to move up to some manger role in the future. Also, how do employers see hiring a mid 30s with a degree compared to all the mid 20s that are coming out of school these days? I am not sure how or what path I should take but I just know I need more education to get a better paying job.

Which graphic design schools are worth it?

Which graphic design schools (and degrees) are worth the time and money? I am interested in taking some graphic design classes so that I can learn the techniques and skills needed to get a good job in the field. I know I need to learn more before I can really expect to get a good job, which is why I need classes, but I'm not sure whether I should just take a few classes on the side or actually invest my time and money in a years-long program.
