Okay, I have to admit, I went crazy trying to find a program that didn't require so much intensive math. Why? I SUCK at MATH, SO BAD. I think I must be math dyslexic. Well, in truth, I have trouble with sequencing, so I just have a hard time at it.

So I started out in computer science. Did GREAT in the programming classes. But we needed calculus. Forget it.

I tried the MIS programs, business Administration. Did great in the SQL, project management classes. SUCKED at accounting.

Every where I looked, the IT programs required an insane amount of math and I just kept hitting brick wall after brick wall.

Until I found the Information Studies program at FSU.

First, let me tell you, this comes out of what was originally their Library and Information Systems Degree. Not Math - BOOKS. AHA!

Now I LOVE to READ. I READ AND READ AND READ AND READ.

I would read so much in grade school and high school that I often didn't do my homework. But what an education I got from my reading!

At any rate - the Information Studies program at FSU has a technology track. They teach web design, database, network design, etc etc. They teach this from a project management point of view. But you get real hands on experience in designing websites in functionality, usability, etc. I am about halfway through the program and I love it!

Now granted, I've already got a solid background in programming, scripting, system administration, so I didn't come into the program with NO technical knowledge - but they were GREAT at putting it all together. I've really enjoyed the program and would highly highly recommend it to ANYONE and EVERYONE! Especially if you have a math phobia like me! :-)

Their graduate program is wholly online. It's been GREAT!

I hit a brick wall when it came to Calculus too. Everything under that, I understood. I have never gone into computer technology or programming, although that is what I wanted to do in middle school. I guess it just sounded neat, lol.

I wish they could come up with a Pharmacy program without the Calculus! I can see needing that somewhat in computers, but in Pharmacy?

That's why I've always stuck to my English and History classes. I'm terrible at math. Closest I've come to using any is in doing layout design for a Pagination class.

Hey, have you ever heard of dyscalculia? It's "math dyslexia" and real enough according to the world health organisation. Try a google search!

You should google dyscalculia - RIGHT NOW. It's "math dyslexia". And you can get help.
