Careers that require a two-year degree?

Mid-career job switcher. Unhappy with my current job and looking to make a switch into something more stable - probably in the medical field. Ideally, I'd like a job that requires an Associates Degree (two year program) rather than a Bachelor's Degree (four year program). A one-year certificate program is even better. What are my options?

How to abbreviate multiple degrees

What is the best practice for listing two degrees after a name in an email signature, when the degrees weren't earned as a joint degree? For example, if the degrees are JD and MPA, should it be JD/MPA, JD+MPA, or some other combination? Maybe just a comma between them? JD/MPA would be the obvious choice for a joint degree, but these are from different universities and earned at different times. [more inside]

Bad permanent record. How to fix it now?

If someone has a 2002 college degree in Communications from a pretty good school, yet only achieved a 2.49 instead of the minimum of 2.5 now required to get into a teaching program, is it possible to go back and get another degree (in, say, history because the student had many courses in that subject) from the same or another school, just adding on the extra few courses and thus raising the GPA to an acceptable level? If not, is there any way to boost a low GPA now aithout spending another 4 years in college???

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.

Does anyone have recommendations for such online study programs? [more inside]
