My friend is attempting to go back to school to better himself and to have the ability to take care of his child that's on the way. With his situation he is unable to go to school during the day so he's limited as far as options for majors. Faulkner University is a private school that offers an evening program. One of the associates degree they offer is a CIS degree. Faulkner is a more expensive school since it is a private school and I want to make sure my friend is making a worthwhile investment. Another friend of mine is telling me that with this degree he could make $15-$19 an hour in Birmingham, AL. Is this type of income possible with just an associates degree? What type of work would my friend end up doing: Field Technician, Help Desk? I appreciate your help.
