I would like to know if it is advisable to change career at the age of 35. I have completed UG in Computer Science in 2001 and have been working in the BPO/IT sector. Planning to do PG through distance education, preferably in Political Science. Is it a good idea to do PG in Political Science with UG in Computers? Are there any other better choices than Political Science? Is it possible to enter into teaching field as a lecturer after completing PG in political science? Experts: Kindly provide your valuable suggestions.

An individual is considered adult after attaining the age of 18 years. Therefore the individuals who are in the age group of 35 years should be able to decide about their own career choices. In general a degree in computer science is considered to be a very good degree and many individuals make much progress after acquiring this basic degree, Therefore apparently to think about continuing further studies in the field of political science after many years of doing degree in computer science appears to be a very personal choice of the individual concerned. In case the author finds that he will be able to do something better by adopting such strategy, then he can very well go ahead. Any field is better if the individual concerned is willing to do extra hard work in the chosen field and thus carve a path on his own.

I think the career you have currently pursued is more stronger than the political science.

The reason being there are not much recruitment and favorable jobs for those who wish to do the political science, gender studies, home science etc. So you should find a course which has some demand from the market.

You didn't mentioned if you want to do the career change for the money or the personal satisfaction reason. In such case I'd say you should consider other options. Political science unless compliments in some way, may not be the right degree.

I'd suggest finding other strong career based courses. You can change career at any age, but you need people to accept that career.

Goodday Mazher Hussain,
Career Change at the age of 35 is good. This might boost your salary package since you have opted to do a higher education and also switching the field from BPO to teaching field.

UG degree in computer science it might be either B.E ( a professional) ,B.C.A, B.SC its good and you have a good experience in BPO industry.

If you opt to choose for a M.C.A degree through distance education mode, it takes two years to complete the education, since it might be a lateral entry.
With this graduation there are good opportunity for computer studies teacher in Maldives,Singapore, Malaysia. Every teacher job does require a UG.,P.G.
