I also disagree that non stem degrees are a waste. I do believe there are factors that lead to success such as location, job experience, GPA, networking and university reputation. I have a lot of black friends with non stem degrees who are doing well for themselves and these factors are all in place.


Well then I guess we have different experiences because my black friends with those factors (Including one that went to a top 3 MBA program & Interned for a Fortune 100 company) are unemployed or underemployed.  I have yet to see someone in my personal life have something tangible to show for these degrees long-term.

You don't need to major in communications to work in communications. I'd do some things related to it on the side, for experience's sake, and get a degree in a technical skill to complement it.

my 2 cents 

If you still like to travel, then you'll want a high paying career where you can work from anywhere 
.. so I'd go the IT route. There are many roles that would make use of communications skills set so it's not necessarily far from what you originally wanted to do.

It's unconventional but here's my suggestion

For the least cost, to make the best use of your time and to maximize your earning potential:

1. Get a certification and start looking for an entry level IT job ... so by the time you finish school you'll have at least three years experience
2. Take as many Clep courses as you can, you can shave off up to 77 credits @ only $80 an exam and save a lot of time
3. Leverage your Clep courses and get an associates (just in case life happens and you can't complete the four year, you'll have something to show)
4. Leverage your associates into a 4yr from a good brick and mortar university (some have online IT degrees)

*apologize for typos I'm on my phone

Nurses do way too much work for not enough credit, IMO.
but i guess that's most jobs.
