Currently I have an MFA in Interactive Design and Game Development. I work as a software engineer (in higher ed) and teach adjunctly. In the next 10 years or so I see myself moving more into teaching.
Do Graduate Certificates hold the same value in conjunction with a terminal degree as masters degrees? Which is the preferred for additional degrees show casing abilities in other areas? With the end goal of either doing research for a university or working towards becoming a professor?
I've tried finding an answer to this on google, but really haven't come up with anything relevant. I've also checked out the Ph.D vs Masters Discussions on here. Any information and help would be appreciated.
I would like to teach at a research university or technical university. My main area of emphasis has been where computer science and programming meet design. Specifically in the web, multi-media, and game development.
