    Was wondering if this course is an actual science course BSc/BSc (Hons) Audio Technology With Multimedia | Glasgow Caledonian University | Scotland, UK

    It looks like a blend of social science, engineering and web design thrown in to complement the engineering side?

    A friend is attending the course and he mentions there are no examinations at all just course work, yet there site says a combo of exams/coursework? Sounds dubious to me.

    Audio Technology with Multimedia BSc/BSc 2 year course at Glasgow Caledonian University if the link doesnt work.

    are you interested in doing the course? Yes. Then do it. If not, then don't.

    Who cares if it is science.

    Well, it'd matter in that you might spend thousands to get a worthless piece of paper. (I don't know whether this is the case or not. Just pointing out that it's a legitimate concern.)

    why would a worthless science paper be worth more than a worthless non-science paper.

    Science isn't a guarantee for anything.

    Good point. I was reading the question as "Is this online degree a good investment?" basically.

    anyway, it is spam. They just want you to click on the link.
