It’s one of the best jobs that you can get with an associate’s degree if you want to be in this field. Television and film work often involve long or unusual hours. For that reason, many camera operators gravitate toward commercial advertising or corporate videos. The more computer skills a camera operator has, the better their job prospects.

For several years, the number of vacancy descriptions that state "no online degrees" has been increasing.
The first "no online degree" declarations were posted for international academic positions and this was to be expected because many other countries had serious problems with diploma mills - those fake institutions that offer degrees for money.
With our degree programs, certificate programs, and more than 150 courses led by Berklee faculty and industry experts, it's easy to find the offering that's right for you.
Today, with previously legitimate universities offering online courses and degrees, it is becoming difficult to separate the diploma mills from the programmes.
Whether you’re looking for a fresh start in a new, more lucrative field or enrolling in college for the first time, a 2-year associate’s degree from a community college is one of the quickest routes to bringing home more bacon each week.

For the Engineer degrees, 162 units are required, plus an acceptable thesis. The Department further requires 24 units of thesis registration, and that at least 90 units, consisting of no less than eight subjects (none less than 9 units), of the 162 required units be graduate "H" subjects. Subjects in which the grade received is C, D, or F will not be accepted in fulfillment of the unit requirement for the EE or ECS degree. A Master's thesis of superior quality will satisfy the EE or ECS thesis requirement. When the Master's thesis grade is reported, the thesis supervisor is asked to certify that, should the EE or ECS degree eventually be sought, the Master's thesis meets the required criteria for quality.
