Since we have lots of people who ask questions targeted toward a specific field of study, I thought we could try and get an idea as to what kind of specialties are represented.

Please - advanced degrees only (not HS/equiv.), and major fields only.

Wrapping up my BS (Hons. Spec.) in Theoretical Computer Science, then hopefully off to grad school in the same field.

One request.  Can you change Computer Programming / Engineering to Computer Science / Engineering.  Computer Programming is a rather small subfield of Computer Science.  :)

You didn't click the theology/religion option?
There appears to be a distinction between Computer Engineering and generic Engineering.  I checked the latter.
I put the computer people together

I don't even know why I did that, especially considering I was almost a Comp Sci major in college.

You should add Greek and Latin (Classics), the Queen of all subjects and the largest and most important faculty at all of the original European Universities (going back to the University of Constantinople).

Also, you should add Law, another one of the still extant ancient faculties.

B.A. French & Spanish. The university department was at the time actually called Romance Studies; they've since changed it to "Department of French, Spanish, and Italian", and I did take a couple of courses in Italian, too, so I guess I can claim a B.A. in Romance Studies  :D
B.Ed. I'm surprised that Education is not an option.

BS in Biology (minor is Psych)
BS in Marketing (minor in Advertising)
Diploma in Programming (post-Grad)

Work in IT as an Infrastructure Analyst (hired in as a programmer, in 10 years haven't written one line of code, though!).

I studied one thing...and got work in a completely different field.

BA in history and working on my Master's in the same.

I'm studying American Indians (especially in the military and Progressive Era). I'd like to go for a doctorate and become a professor someday.

I like cultural history and occasional dabbling in political and intellectual history when it connects (and that is fairly often).

In a year I'll propably have got the engineer (bachelor) degree in Robotics. I suppose I'll start master studies then.

Why is Aeronautics separated from other kings of engineering?

Interesting topics; you are just about as career ready as I am with the degree I'm working on in Philosophy.  :D
